I have a question for you all

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I have a question that is fairly small in the scheme of things, but it would mean a lot to me if I could get an answer from those that it would affect, which is you.  I am thinking about changing the name of the blog to Activity Fun Zone.  I changed the header to see what it would look like and to give an idea to everyone about what the difference would be.

a-question

My question is, would it be confusing if I changed the name?  Would it have an effect on the people that come to the blog?  The content would be the same, just the name would be different.  What do you prefer, and why?  Therapy Fun Zone, or Activity Fun Zone.  Is it better to keep therapy in the name, or would the blog have a wider scope with activity in the name instead?

Inquiring minds want to know.

  1. I think as therapist’s we need to keep the word therapy in our work sometimes to remind others that we have years of specialized education and trainings that back our recommendations up. There are many moms and homeschool teachers, etc. that have activity blogs out there already. These activities may be fun, cute, or resourceful but are not based primarily on sound developmental principles and theory. I’m an OT and have a therapy clinic that doesn’t mention therapy in the title for kid’s sake but I definitely educate families in what I am and what it is that I provide my clients. I think highly parents value us as specialists. Best of luck in whatever route you take while keeping precious our amazing OT foundation and values. :-)

  2. I think the answer depends on the audience that you want to reach with your website. I am also an OT and look for theraputic activities designed to meet the goals I have for my students and I am guessing that is your goal as well. This might factor into your choice of names. Thank-you for all the hard work and time you put into your wbsite. It is appreciated.

    1. Thank you. I think the overwhelming opinion is for me to leave therapy in the name. I really appreciate the input.

  3. I agree with the above. I love your ideas and as a pediatric OT I value the therapeutic value. I tend to follow your site because of the value of your ideas and that they are a part of therapy not just a fun idea. Please keep it up

  4. I was drawn to your page by the name initially and believe it appropriately describes the content.

  5. I have only recently begun to follow your blog (and love the ideas..btw) and one of the reasons that attracted me was the “Therapy”. I am a teacher that works with younger children and I am looking for great activities to include in my classroom to help build and strengthen muscles. I found a post and enjoyed the activity, but decided to follow you because I figured with the name “Therapy Fun’ I would continue to get ideas I was looking for rather than just random fun activities.

  6. Much like Sarah above I’ve only been following your site for a little while but have gotten so many great ideas and learned a lot too. I’m a stay-at-home mom but I found your site searching for therapy activites I could do at home with my 6 year old boy. He is on a waiting list (OT and Speech, he receives PT through our wonderful school system) for a local therapy practice, and I wanted tried and true activities from specialists in the field. I personally would keep the Therapy, again like Sarah, I think it shows that these ideas and activities are designed specifically to practice certain skills and help kids.

    Thank you for all the work on this blog. It is such a wonderful source of knowledge and encouragement! Either way you have a follower here!
