Welcome to the show notes for Episode 9 of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast.

In this episode, guest Leah Hiller, OTR/L, and Jayson dive into Response to Intervention (RTI) a bit and discuss several ways OTs can have an impact on students without ever completing an evaluation. RTI is a growing model in schools and as OTs, it opens the door for us to help more students in less time. It also provides opportunities for OTs to provide in-services for teachers and recommend curriculums that will benefit the social and motor aspects of student roles.

Have a listen if you would like to hear how Leah and Jayson are providing RTI in schools.
