Common Core Standards

I highly recommend looking at the new IDEA Partnership Common Core Standards Collection.

The collection includes: a ready-to-use workshop with presenter guide, three dialogue guides to begin conversation, short videoclips describing purpose of tools and more.   We need to articulate our role in helping students achieve these benchmarks.

You could pair this collection with the IDEA Partnership Collection on Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISPs), often referred to as Related Services and with the IRIS Center Module on Related Services/SISPs.  Specific information about occupational therapy is offered through both of these modules

  • I believe I could be a major player once I get my license in OT some time next year.  I probably can be someone like you... going to all the autism conferences as an OT who also happened to be a stakeholder in representing people in the autism community.  I can see myself as a leader/researcher in autism and driving the OT profession forward.

  • You are already demonstrating leadership by sharing your story, attending conferences, studying and collaborating.
