AOTA’s Vision 2025 and strategic plan provide a framework for therapy professionals to overcome obstacles to leadership and advocate for their distinct value in the school setting. Most states exclude OT practitioners from obtaining State Department of Education credentialing, which limits our ability to align with AOTA’s Vision 2025 of OTs as leaders. Using AOTA’s advocacy tools, practitioners can strategically continue to forge new pathways for school OT professionals.
