Each year in August, the OT Schoolhouse hosts the annual Back To School Conference.
This virtual conference is unlike any other conference for OT practitioners and provides a stage for both practitioners and researchers who love school-based OT.
We are hard at work planning for the
2022 Back to School Conference.
Want to learn more about this online conference for school-based OT practitioners coming in August, click on the button below.
This year's theme is "Expanding Collaborative Services in School-Based OT" and we are bringing in 6 expert speakers to share about collaboration in various aspects.
The best therapists need the best resources
We have some amazing courses and tools here at the OT Schoolhouse, but even we need some help from others.
Here are a few websites and tools we recommend to make your life easier as an occupational therapy practitioner.
The OT Schoolhouse may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you when you use these services. In fact, you may even get a discount as part of the OTS Community.
Medbridge Education provides an array of on-demand continuing education opportunities. I highly recommend the 7-part series on the SCERTS Model with Amy Laurent, PhD, OTR/L.
