Who is The Dynamic School OT Coalition for?
The Coalition is for occupational therapists who are practicing or would like to practice in the U.S. school system. OTAs will find much of this content relevant as well. The Dynamic School OT Coalition is ONLY available to current students or alumni of The Dynamic School OT Self-Paced Course.
What is the difference between The Dynamic School OT Coalition and The Dynamic School OT Course?
The Coalition is for alumni/current students of the self-paced course. It adds live coaching calls, more opportunities for Q&A, a private community, and exclusive resources that can only be found in The Coalition.
Is this program only for therapists who are new to the school system?
No! While this is an excellent primer for any therapist brand new to the school system, it's also full of great resources for OTPs who have been doing this for a while. Many OTs who have been working in the schools for over 10 or even 15 years have enrolled in the program and loved it. No matter how long you've been in the schools, if you feel that something is holding you back from being more efficient, effective, and confident in your practice, then this program is a great fit for you.
Can students enroll in this program?
Yes, absolutely! This program will cover topics that your university's class likely won't touch, and will be relevant for any student who would like to go into this setting after they graduate. Plus, you'll find immense networking benefits in the community. It's a great thing to put on your resume when applying for that first job!
Is this program approved for CEUs?
The Dynamic School OT is an AOTA Approved Provider for the Self-Paced Course. No additional CEU certificate is granted by signing up for The Coalition, however, you may be able to utilize your time spent in the program to meet continuing education requirements for state or national registration. Please review your entity's continuing education guidelines to see if participating in a professional study/mentorship group may satisfy your continuing education requirements.
If you are outside of the US, this program may count for CEU credit for you as well. Please email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.
When and where does the program take place?
The group coaching calls take place every Monday at 4 pm Pacific. If you're ever unable to attend the call, you'll be able to view the recording + ask any follow-up questions!
The rest of the material is self-paced and able to be accessed at your convenience.
How often is the Coalition open for enrollment?
The Coalition is open for enrollment on a continual basis. If you are a current student or alumni of The Dynamic School OT Self-Paced Course, you can sign up at any time. You will find a sign-up link inside the self-paced course, or you're welcome to email me at [email protected] and I'll help you get signed up!
Can practitioners outside of the U.S. benefit from this program?
Yes, with the caveat that much of this program is based on the special education system in the U.S. If you're working in schools in a different country, the content on intervention, creating systems, and assistive technology will likely still be relevant to you, but some of the other material about laws and regulations in the U.S. won't be. If you're on the fence, shoot me an email at [email protected] and I can help you decide if this would be helpful in your country.
Are scholarships available?
Yes! Limited, sliding scale scholarships are available for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) practitioners who are working in high-needs schools (such as Title 1). If this sounds like you, please message me with some details about your situation at [email protected].
How do I request accommodations for special needs?
Email me at [email protected] to discuss your needs before registering and I will work with you to provide needed accommodations per the ADA.
What age groups/diagnoses does the program cover?
This program will be relevant for therapists who are working with preschoolers all the way to 21+ post-secondary students. It is also applicable to therapists working with a variety of diagnoses commonly seen in the school system, such as autism, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, ADHD, developmental delay, etc. If you're not sure if this program will be relevant to your current position/caseload, message me at [email protected] and I'd be happy to answer!
Is there an installment plan available?
Currently, there is no installment plan available for The Dynamic School OT Coalition. Students can sign up at $99 a month and cancel at any time.
What is the refund policy?

Is group pricing available?
Yes! If your entire department would like to enroll in this program, please email me with the number of therapists interested and I will send you a group price. You can email me at [email protected].
