Course Description

Collaboration is essential in providing therapy services in school systems.

Research indicates that students succeed when support is provided to the individual, team, and systems in place.

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 will review how to determine dosage/frequencies, strategies for using your time efficiently, research, and case studies that support increased collaboration in school systems.
