Live WebinarThu, Aug 1, 2024 at 3:00 pm EDT

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is essential to human development and helps create a positive learning environment for all students. Many school districts are establishing systemic, schoolwide approaches to SEL. Therefore, school-based occupational therapy practitioners need to understand their role in implementing SEL within therapy sessions or as school team members. SEL is required for successful participation in most areas of occupational performance and falls well within the scope of occupational therapy. This webinar will immediately provide you with specific strategies to address SEL within your current role.
