Programme Description

School-Based Practice—Advanced Professional Certificate

Tufts University - Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

The Advanced Professional Certificate in School-based Practice is a series of three courses delivered in an asynchronous online format, over the course of one calendar year, and aims to create a supported professional development opportunity for working school-based therapists. Given reform in special education and civil rights legislation, current guidelines for best practices in the provisions of educationally-relevant related services to students with disabilities, as well as school system pressures, including increased accountability for student outcomes, the program prepares participants to become more evidence-based and effective in advancing a systems approach to delivery of services. The certificate will focus on systems considerations, current evidence for evaluation and intervention, research on inter-professional teams and collaboration, self-reflection on personal practice patterns, and action-planning for potential practice change.

This certificate requires the following online courses:

Two core courses:

  • OTS 284 Therapy in Schools: Best Practices (online)
  • OTS 285 Mentored Seminar in Schools Practice (online)

One elective (select one):

  • OTS 193 Working with Children with Autism (online)
  • OTS 194 Working with Children and Adolescents with Self-Regulation Issues (online)

The program is open to individuals with a bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degree in occupational therapy interested in expanding their careers or eager to strengthen their expertise.

This school offers programs in:
  • English
