School Based Occupational Therapy

School Based Occupational Therapy


1. Develop common curriculum guidelines for undergraduate and postgraduate education to use and adapt to their own national context.

2. Provide guidelines for supporting students on diverse and innovative fieldwork opportunities in emerging areas of practice at all levels of their national education system (preschools, primary schools, secondary schools, etc.)

3. Engage students in research and practice development projects in the area of School-Based OT, either as part of OT educators’ projects, or student-directed projects (e.g. MSc Dissertation projects).
