Must have school year experience for this position and available to start in this school year, taking interview this week for January starts. Must be proficient with School evaluations. Please contact Amanda at 813-990-8880 for more information. School occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants are key contributors within the education team. They support a student's ability to participate in desired daily school activities or "occupations." They help children to fulfill their role as students by supporting their academic achievement and promoting positive behaviors necessary for learning. School occupational therapists (and occupational therapy assistants, under the supervision of the occupational therapist) support academic and non-academic outcomes, including social skills, math, reading and writing (i.e., literacy), behavior management, recess, participation in sports, self-help skills, prevocational/vocational participation, transportation, and more. Because of their expertise in activity and environmental analysis, practitioners are particularly skilled in facilitating student access to curricular and extracurricular activities. They focus on the students' strengths, and can design and implement programming to improve inclusion and accessibility, such as Universal Design for Learning. Additionally, they play a critical role in educating parents, educators, administrators and other staff members. They offer services along a continuum of prevention, promotion, and interventions and serve individual students, groups of students, whole classrooms, and whole school initiatives. They collaborate within the education team to support student success. In this way, occupational therapy practitioners can contribute within both general and special education. Occupational therapy practitioners have specific knowledge and expertise to increase participation in school routines throughout the day. Interventions include:* Conducting activity and environmental analysis and making recommendations to improve the fit for greater access, progress, and participation* Reducing barriers that limit student participation within the school environment* Providing assistive technology to support student success* Supporting the needs of students with significant challenges, such as by helping to determine methods for alternate educational assessment and learning* Helping to identify long-term goals for appropriate post-school outcomes* Helping to plan relevant instructional activities for ongoing implementation in the classroom * Preparing students for successfully transitioning into appropriate post-high school employment, independent liv-ing, and/or further educationOccupational therapy practitioners are key contributors within the educational team. They help to address both mental and physical health. They collaborate with a variety of partners, such as:* Students, to help them to develop self-advocacy and self-determination skills in order to plan for their future and transition to college, career/employment, and community living; improve their performance in learning environ-ments throughout the school (e.g., playgrounds, classrooms, lunchrooms, bathrooms); and optimize their perfor-mance through specific adaptations and accommodations
