Back To School Conference

Promoting Independence In Education

August 27-29, 2021

I am pleased to invite you to the first ever,

OT School House: Back To School Conference. This year's theme as we return to the classroom is promoting independence in education.

 

Children spend nearly one half of their day at school and it is our duty to help them be as independent as possible in the least restrictive environment. 

This year, the Back To School Conference will be a nationwide (perhaps worldwide) gathering of school-based and pediatric occupational therapists that value the importance of supporting children where they are. 

 

With a Friday evening keynote address, virtually live Saturday sessions, and an additional 2 sessions on Sunday, this conference is sure to get you ready to tackle the 2021-22 school year. Sessions will address sensory processing, trauma, behavior, determining the appropriate frequency of services for students, and much more!

If you are ready to improve yourself as a school-based therapist and learn from those who have put the research into practice, sign up now for the best possible early bird price!

Presenters

 

I (Jayson Davies, MA, OTR/L) will be presenting on the flow of an IEP and how to determine the recommended frequency for students in a school-based model. As a new school-based therapist, or even with few years experience, you may find yourself questioning yourself as to how you decided to give one student weekly services and another student monthly services. This presentation will help you to feel more confident in your clinical decision skills and provide you with printable and digital worksheets to help you determine how frequently you need to see each of your students. 

More Presenters will be announced in March of 2021

Great Value!

This conference is design for you as a school-based OT and every session has been researched, vetted, and hand selected by Jayson to be relevant for the school-based OT looking to help students in the least restrictive environment. Each presenter has many years of experience and has demonstrated the ethical decision making you expect from the OT School House! On top off a hand curated schedule of sessions, you will have the opportunity to earn 10+ hours of professional development hours in just one weekend! Oh, and did I mention the swag bag?!? Check that out below!

Promoting Independence In Education

The theme for this year's conference is promoting independence in education. Whether it is handwriting, self-regulation, or ADLs that are limiting a child's success at school, occupational therapists can help. Better yet, we can do it while keeping the student in the least restrictive environment! This year, sessions at the Back To School conference will focus on supporting student education and independence where they are.

Session Handouts & Replays

For each conference session, handouts will be made available to download and print prior to the start of the conference. After registering and prior to the conference, you will be sent a link to the attendee portal where you will be able to download and print the slides. 

The attendee portal will also host replays of the conference sessions until the end of September, 2021. As a registered Attendee of the conference, you will have access to the conference handouts and session video replays until the end of September, 2021.

Flexible Payment Plan

 

We understand that times are tough right now. While some OTs are secure in their in their positions, we realize this is not the case for everyone. For this reason, we are offering a 3-month payment plan leading up to the conference. the payment plan consists of three monthly $99 payments. Whether you have student loans to pay, a car to save up for, or a family to feed, we want you to be able to attend the conference while being fiscally responsible. 

You can register for the course now with the 3-month payment plan using the button below. The last day to sign up for the course using the payment plan will be June 27th. 

Community Engagement

Due to the regulations put in place as a result of the Coronavirus, most of us have not had the opportunity to engage with other therapists from our county, state, or elsewhere. 

For this virtual conference, we will be using a platform that allows for both synchronous and asynchronous communication between participants and presenters. Likewise, an optional networking lunch will hosted by Jayson on Saturday

There will also be opportunities for live Q+A with the presenters at the end of each session.
