For school-based occupational therapists, connecting assessment results, educational need, and intervention can be a challenge. This 2-hour webinar is appropriate for occupational therapists or those needing a brush-up on school-based assessment. Using SCHOODLES School Fine Motor Assessment, we’ll focus on how to systematically conduct the essential non-standardized portion of an occupational therapy evaluation and gain applicable meaning from observations. Participants learn how to clearly identify, analyze, and describe fine motor areas of need related to school performance. We also review how to pull educationally appropriate goals from our findings.
