    Demand for OT in school settings is growing due to increases in cases of learning disabilities, sensory processing disorder (SPD) and autism combined with the rigors of the Common Core Standards. SPED administrators are trying—and seeing success with—new service delivery options, including using online therapists.  For online OT, how can SPED administrators go about selecting students who will see good results with this model?  Which delivery models work best for specific student goals? How can a blended model of online and onsite delivery improve quality of service, outcomes and compliance?  Join a national audience of special education directors for a free one hour webinar as we answer these important questions and more.
