Demand for OT in school settings is growing due to increases in cases of learning disabilities, sensory processing disorder (SPD) and autism combined with the rigors of the Common Core Standards. SPED administrators are trying—and seeing success with—new service delivery options, including using online therapists. For online OT, how can SPED administrators go about selecting students who will see good results with this model? Which delivery models work best for specific student goals? How can a blended model of online and onsite delivery improve quality of service, outcomes and compliance?
During the one hour webinar, Robyn Chu, MOT, OTR/L, and Dr. Rondalyn Whitney, PhD, OT/L, an assistant professor of occupation therapy at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, will share their first-hand experiences with online OT. This webinar will inform special education directors and administrators of the benefits of providing online OT in school settings, as well as teach them how a blended model of online and onsite OT delivery can improve quality of service, outcomes and compliance.
By attending the webinar, participants will:
- Understand the factors to consider for an online delivery model for OT.
- Identify selection criteria for students who would benefit from online OT.
- Cite examples of common IEP goals and student outcomes in online OT cases.
