OT’s Role in Social and Emotional Learning
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is essential to human development and helps create a positive learning environment for all students. Many school districts are establishing systemic, schoolwide approaches to SEL. Therefore, it is important for school-based occupational therapy practitioners to understand their role in implementing SEL within therapy sessions or as members of the school team. SEL is required for successful participation in most areas of occupational performance and falls well within the scope of occupational therapy. This 2-hour webinar provides occupational therapists with specific strategies to address SEL within their current roles that can be implemented immediately.
- Identify the role of an OT in the five areas of SEL.
- Apply three OT strategies that impact social-emotional learning.
- Delineate OT strategies relevant to SEL that are appropriate at each of the three tiers of intervention.
- Evaluate ways that social-emotional learning may impact the responsiveness of over- and under responders.
