OTSH 59: When To Use Screenings In School-Based OT
In this episode, I'm sharing with you the who, what, when, where, why & how of screenings in the school-based OT setting. Whether you are a brand new occupational Therapist or a seasoned School-Based OT, the likelihood that you are using screenings and the subsequent opportunities to their full potential is unlikely simply because it is not something we are trained in. I hope this podcast can inspire you to move forward with supporting more students that just those who are on an IEP.
Customer ReviewsSee All
As an OT in school based practice, I love this podcast! It is so relevant and timely. I especially appreciate the recent telehealth focused series :)
Finally, continuing education that is relevant to school based OT! The podcasts are informative, entertaining and easy to listen to in your car traveling from school to school or over lunch. The information can be used immediately in your school based practice. I would highly recommend this podcast for any school based OT looking for continuing education or wanting to follow OT professionals that play on the same playground! Thank you.
Wonderful podcast & PDUs/CEUs
This podcast is indispensable for any school-based OT! Lots of great information on a variety of topics. My favorite part is that you can buy optional cheap professional development hours, which in many states (including mine) can also be used as contact hours for licensure renewal. It’s an easy and fun way to get that continuing education! Also if you’re lucky you might get a video from Jayson thanking you for buying the professional development opportunities!
