Dosing Tools for the School-based Practitioner

What tools can assist you in determining appropriate dosing for school-based therapy services? In this course, Sue will lead the learners in an exploration of 3 different tools for deciding dosage (the CERT, the DRRT, APTA’s dosing manual) using a case study. Learners will draw lessons regarding the strengths and limitations of each tool. Based on these lessons, Sue will discuss dosing decisions in relation to different service delivery models, including direct services, integrated services and services on behalf of the student.
