In 2017, Jayson founded the OT Schoolhouse website and now supports school-based OT practitioners via courses, conferences, and the OTS Collaborative community.
With experience as both a contracted therapist and an "in-house" employee for two distinctly different districts, Jayson has had the opportunity to appreciate the differences between both small-rural and large-suburban districts.
Recently, Jayson has put forth his efforts toward supporting therapists interested in tiered intervention, collaborative programming, and managing their workloads.
“Start with one student and one teacher and build from there - find a student who is mastering skills in the OT room but needs to generalize” - Jayson Davies, M.A. OTR/L
“Don't fake it till you make it. Instead, believe it till you achieve it” -Jayson Davies, M.A. OTR/L
“If you have a student focusing on handwriting, try to find a way to incorporate daily support…even a 5 minutes check-in could have better outcomes” -Jayson Davies, M.A. OTR/L
