This fantastic group of OTs and OT students share how they developed an evidence-based referral process and occupational therapy manual. This group has spent over a year together working on this manual for a school district in Southern California and recently presented their manual in a presentation at the Western Regional Occupational Therapy Symposium in San Diego. With any luck, they may also be presenting at #AOTA2019 in Boston, Ma.
