School Occupational Therapist Duties

A school-based occupational therapist uses specific knowledge and experience to help students participate in day-to-day activities, caring for their emotional, academic, and mental health and well-being. The main goal of the school occupational therapist is to help encourage and increase participation in daily school routines, extra activities and other social events. On a daily basis, the school occupational therapist will be asked to conduct thorough analysis of the students, make recommendations to improve the students’ participation and progress, reduce student limitations, provide technology to support students in their success goals, help certain students develop alternate learning methods, identify long-term goals for each student as well as the school itself, plan for extra-curricular activities and prepare older students for employment or college after high school. Occupational therapists are important for addressing both the academic and the mental and physical health of each student. They can also provide their support services to the staff and faculty, helping the education process run smoothly on all ends.

School Occupational Therapist Education Requirements

A relevant bachelor’s degree is a requirement for becoming a school occupational therapist. It is also recommended that a professional pursue a master’s degree in occupational therapy in order to qualify for all of the necessary licensures and certifications. Then, the school occupational therapist must pass the NBCOT examination, which will grant them a license from the state licensing board. A school occupational therapist is also required to have critical thinking skills, the ability to work well with children and a strong habit for advocating for better education.
