Welcome to the
OT School House
Hi, My name is Jayson and I as a school-Based OT located in Southern California. I have work for districts large and small and have had to learn on my own as there was very little mentorship available. The OT School House was developed to help you through the same struggles I had, and continue to have.

If you are looking for a comprehensive course on how to be a school-based OT, I highly recommend the A-Z School-Based OT Course.
I created this course to help any therapist thinking about transitioning into the schools or for current school-based therapists looking to better understand RTI, the referral process, evaluations, IEPs and the steps needed to ethically graduate students from OT services.
If this sounds like a course you would benefit from, use the button below to get a full look at what the course includes. Trust me, it is more than just a course!
Practice Guidelines Interactive Map
Does your state have guidelines for School-based OTs?
I put together a map to help you find the school-based practice guidelines for your state. Not all states have them.
I recommend checking out California's and New York's guidelines if your state does not have their own.
