featuring Miss Jaime, O.T.
How and why OT, Jaime Spencer, transitioned to the online therapy space while advocating for School-based Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy equality with Rehab Rebels’ Tanner Welsch, PT.
Jaime Spencer joins Jayson Davies of OT School House for Episode 19: Exploring the Idea of a School-based OT Credential.
School-based Occupational Therapists have been a part of public education since legislation was initially enacted in the 1970s, but often do not have pathways to educational leadership. OT practitioners are unable to serve as administrators within a school system in 46 states in the United States.
In this special episode of the OT School House Podcast, we will explore the unique qualities that OT practitioners possess that support leadership roles within a school system. Barriers to advancing into leadership positions (e.g., policy) OT practitioners face are identified and solutions are discussed.
The audio in this episode comes from a presentation prepared for the Occupational Therapy Association of California 2021 Annual Conference. It is presented by Jayson Davies, MA, OTR/L, & Jaime Spencer, MS, OTR/L.
