School-based OT practitioners are not handwriting teachers! However, handwriting is often the most common reason for referral.

In our chat with Debra Collete today, we are discussing a recent article where she surveyed teachers, administrators, and therapists on the missing pieces of handwriting in schools. Ten years ago, common core began to take over school standards, but the standards neglected to include handwriting. Tune in to learn how common core standards have impacted handwriting and how you can support students and teachers in implementing a handwriting curriculum. 

Objectives for this Professional Development Podcast. Listeners will:

  1. Learners will identify the connects and disconnects between the common core curriculum with handwriting
  2. Learners will identify the impact common core has made on children’s written expression
  3. Learners will identify how common core and handwriting can impact OTPs
  4. Learners will identify what OTPs can do to support curriculum and handwriting on a systems level

What you will receive as part of this podcast course:

  • Upon passing the short quiz, you will be provided a certificate of completion to use for state licensure and/or national board certification renewal.

Each state has different guidelines on what can count toward your professional development requirements. Be sure to check your state requirements. While we consult with state and NBCOT documents in an attempt to ensure our courses meet national guidelines, the OT Schoolhouse is not responsible for any courses that your state or national agency questions or refuses to accept as professional development.
