Guest Bio

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.


"AI is training computers... to have so much knowledge that they can then make decisions and craft responses on their own."

- Jayson Davies, MA, OTR/L

“We need to at least be familiar with it in order to make sure that when push comes to shove, occupational therapy practitioners can stand up and say, hey, I know AI and this is how I'm using AI.”

- Jayson Davies, MA, OTR/L

“I think it's going to help us be more organized. It's going to help us to better evaluate and understand our caseloads and our workloads.”

- Jayson Davies, MA, OTR/L
