Innovations Lab: School-Based Practice

This Innovations Lab is designed for school-based occupational therapy practitioners who wish to learn and grow through collaborative online professional development. The topics discussed are timely and highly relevant to school-based practice. Jefferson occupational therapy faculty co-facilitate the Labs with a guest facilitator with expertise on the topic.
