Recorded August 23, 2018

OT practitioners will gain a foundational knowledge of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the potential roles for OTs as Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISP) in supporting educators to meet the social emotional needs of all students. This will include resources and evidence related to current mental health initiatives of school OTs; thereby offer practitioners a “starting point" to initiate mental health service delivery in their school setting(s).


Cindy has served as a consultant and educator to hundreds of school occupational therapy practitioners, school leaders, and educators on topics of inclusive special education, educational equity, school discipline, and organizational leadership. As an occupational therapist, Cindy advocates the distinct value of occupational therapy in school practice settings and supports practitioners in expanding the role of occupational therapists in supporting positive mental health outcomes for children and youth.
