Leaders Event for OT/PT and SLP Coordinators
Location: Orlando
Presenter(s): Elizabeth Noel Haas, M.S., OTR, Melissa Jakubowitz, M.A., CCC-SLP, Mary Walsh
Double Down Arrow
Description: Day 1: Mary Walsh, Program Specialist from the Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services, FDOE will provide an update on current topics of interest relevant to related services. Attendees will also have opportunities to conduct Consultancy Protocols with one another to obtain ideas and suggestions for issues of practices currently of concern.

Day 2: As telepractice continues to grow, more school districts and practitioners are considering incorporating services into their current paradigm. Telepractice can meet the needs of a diverse group of clients, and allow clinicians to serve clients who might not otherwise be able to receive services. Knowledge about telepractice services and the components necessary to provide high-quality services via telepractice are imperative before starting a new service delivery modality. This session will discuss how to provide quality services, ethical considerations, the pitfalls and how to avoid them, and how to obtain support needed to ensure appropriate service delivery.

We are asking all attendees to select one of two options to participate in group sharing.

  1. Share a successful strategy you have developed in a 10 & 10 session. This will consist of you presenting to approximately 8 of your peers for approximately 10 minutes, telling them about the use of a tool, resource or strategy to support delivery of related services and/or therapy in your district. Following your presentation, the group will ask you questions about the tool, resource or strategy for 10 minutes. To select this option click on this link and provide the information requested by Feb. 15th.
  1. Consultancy protocol. This is a format where you bring a challenge you are experiencing with effective implementation of related services and/or therapy and share it with approximately 8 of your peers. Then they work through a discussion protocol while you listen and provide you some possible solutions. To select this option please click on this link and provide the information requested by Feb. 15th
