This CE on CD™ will provide participants with information and practical strategies they can use to keep current with issues, trends and new knowledge related to providing services for children and youth in the public schools. Topics include current legislation such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004), the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Ideas and approaches will be presented that can be implemented by an individual occupational therapy practitioner or in collaboration with other colleagues or members of a school district team. Through this CE on CD™, participants will explore web-based resources, resource manuals, education sources, collaborative methods and more. Strategies are included to help participants find, use, and apply new information in their practice to promote student participation in the curriculum and across school activities.
