2012 OOTA Summer Pediatric Workshop - Dayton

Monday 23 July 2012

IMPACT OT- use it or lose it

--A Pediatric Practice Update

5.5 Contact Hours
Facilitator:  Brenda George, MS, OTR/L
Pediatric Member Support Group Coordinator

Limited funding and staffing concerns continue to challenge us all.  We are pressed further to do more with less.  Some of us are serving districts that attempt to limit our services to children, while others have experienced changes in the school district’s hiring practices.  OT OTA partnerships are being stretched to the limits. The numbers of students for which we are responsible continue to rise with little regard to state standards, standards or effective practice.  In some areas of the state, schools are increasing their reliance on contracted OT providers, presenting even more delivery and supervision challenges.  These dilemmas constantly test our professional decision-making and creativity.

So, how do we preserve our professional purpose, integrity and intent?   How do we keep sight of our professional mission and remember why we all chose Occupational Therapy as our professional in the first place?  Despite all of the external pressures and changes, we must continue to be committed to making a difference in the lives of the students, staff and families we serve.

This 8th annual workshop will continue to provide a forum for OT Practitioners to openly share and discuss day-to-day issues, factors and concerns.   You will also hear about some exciting opportunities and new resources becoming at the state and national levels.

All OT pediatric providers, employed or contracted, are encouraged to attend to learn more about regulations, policies and practices, which impact services to children.  This is a prime opportunity to network with other OT practitioners in your region to bridge school, home and community service delivery.
