Caseload Management to Provide Effective Push-Ins and Collaboration!

Webinar Length (Hours):



Kim Wiggins, OTR/L


Caseload Management to Provide Effective Push-Ins and Collaboration!

Collaboration is essential in providing therapy services in school systems. Research indicates that support must be provided to the individual student, team, and systems that are in place so that students may succeed. Although pull-out sessions can be effective, pushing into the classroom and collaboration are the new norms. Unfortunately, a huge barrier to push-in sessions is TIME! This 2-hour webinar reviews how to determine dosage/frequencies, strategies for using your time efficiently, research, and case studies that support increased collaboration in school systems.
