OT Toolbox for Effective Push-Ins, Collaboration, and Time Management
Formerly titled “A Collaboration Sensation!”
Collaboration is essential in providing occupational therapy services in school systems. Research indicates that support must be provided to the individual, team, and systems in place so that students may succeed. Although pull-out sessions can be effective, pushing into the classroom and collaboration is the new norm. A huge barrier to push-in sessions is TIME! This course reviews how to determine dosage/frequencies, strategies for using your time efficiently, research, and case studies that support increased collaboration in school systems.
- Recognize differences between collaboration and direct service.
- Differentiate hands-on services, team supports, and system supports.
- List examples of push-in strategies for the classroom.
- Identify approaches for improving push-in barriers.
