Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

Occupational therapists (OTs) are restricted in obtaining school leadership roles largely due to state credentialing. The occupational therapy profession’s competing historical forces are balanced with a strong knowledge base in human development, service contexts, and leadership. OTs need to advocate for development into school leadership roles.
