The School Based Practice Professional Certificate has been created to assist you in acquiring knowledge and skills that cover a broad range of topics important for OT practitioners working with K-12 students and beyond within the public school system. The ability for all children, including those with differences in cognitive and physical abilities are extremely important populations that we serve. This certificate process has provided you with information related to social/emotional skills and well being, the role of OT in ensuring academic success, and transitions during k-12 and into adulthood. Together these areas ensure that you will approach your client with a full holistic focus on how to empower children and their family/caretakers as they gain skills and abilities needed for participation in daily life occupations.
A professional certificate is a verifiable document that attests to knowledge obtained by a practitioner regarding a specific topic or topic area. Professional certificates are obtained through the completion of designated AOTA professional development activities and the completion of required foundational courses.
