Welcome to the show notes for Episode 49 of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast.
In this episode, Jayson interviews Sarah Collins, OTR/L. Sarah is an occupational therapist that specializes in supporting students who are homeschooled and the families that support them. Homeschooling her own kids has helped her to understand where the true needs are for this community and the research she has found supports the occupational coaching model that she uses with her clients. Listen in and earn 1 hour of professional development for doing so!
Here are the objectives for this Professional Development Podcast. Listeners will:
Demonstrate an understanding of common reasons why families may choose to homeschool their students and the stigmas that may prevent them from doing so.
Be introduced to some of the literature around homeschooling and special education related to homeschooling, as well as the need for educational occupational therapy support services
Gain knowledge in how an evidence-based coaching model can work to support homeschooling families.
