Trina Foltz, PT, Noreen Giovannone, PT and Jennifer Santaniello, PT



Cost $50.00


Do you struggle with creating functional school based therapy goals?

Do you ever feel like you don’t know what tests and measures to administer in order to
be able to document measurable progress?

 If you’ve answered yes to these questions, this webinar is for you!

This webinar will teach you how to develop school based goals and objectives using measurable pediatric special tests as a guide. We will provide videos demonstrating how to administer these tests with real students. These quick tests are also applicable for those students in which standardized testing is difficult to attain. We will provide a testing template that you will be able to use tomorrow! These tests can be completed by both PTs and OTs to compile student specific data to measure progress and success. We will take you through the thought process of how to devise school based goals based on the collected data. When you follow these steps, you can be confident that your goals will not only be school relevant, but will be backed by objective data that is measurable.
