We are excited to support you and learn how you will support others in the OT Schoolhouse Collaborative Community.
OTS Collab is a place to connect with others, ask questions about school-based OT, and have conversations about everything school-based OT.
The community is only great because our members make it great. Please help us to keep OTS Collab a place where all OT practitioners feel safe, welcomed, and heard by reading and complying with our Code of Conduct.
