Being Responsive to New Trends in School Practice
Schefkind, Sandra; Carroll, Theresa Carlson
Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, v8 n3 p216-227 2015
The purpose of this article is to highlight educational accountability and its relevance to occupational therapy. New federal investments are under way so that states can identify measures and procure data that indicate improved outcomes for students with disabilities. School occupational-therapy practitioners must advocate for their distinct value within these initiatives by offering data-driven decision making within their service and by becoming knowledgeable and conversant about these trends. Such evidence-based practices, in accordance with the AOTA Centennial Vision, secure our profession. This article offers both a conceptual overview and practical steps to support this endeavor.
