iPads at School Program
online course - presently open
This program is where Occupational Therapists combine their knowledge with the power of technology to provide life changing results.
The iPads at School Program has been online since 2013, teaching Occupational Therapists from across the globe how to apply smart technology strategies to allow their clients to gain the skills they need.
So even if....
You are an OT that feels that the iPad is just for academic work. I will show you how it can develop all skills and what your role is.
You are an OT that doesn't have an iPad in your hands. You can still apply the strategies and concept and empower others to develop skills.
You are an OT that has just graduated and you are not working with kids (like you would like to). You will prepare yourself for the position.
You are an OT that has experience in a technology-based clinic. I have shared new strategies and approaches with OTs in various positions.
