Presented by Jessica Rykert-Holt

Do you eat well? Do your patients eat well? What we eat and don’t eat, directly impacts our health. Proper nutrition can help prevent as well as reverse many chronic diseases. Part of our OT scope of practice is to help people eat healthy food, meal plan, shop for, and prepare well-balanced nutritional meals. This presentation will provide simple ways that OTs can encourage a healthy diet for their patients, as well as create measurable functional goals related to nutrition and the adoption of healthy habits and routines.

Presented by Stacey Vieyr-Braendle, MT-BC and Chelsea Salvatera, MSEd

The School to Prison Pipeline (STPP) is an under-addressed national phenomenon in which youth of color and youth with disabilities are disproportionately funneled out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. This session will explore what the STPP is and unpack the role of occupational therapy in preventing at-risk youth from entering the pipeline.

Presented by Brandon Eddy, M.A., CCC-SLP and Katherine Stribling, PT, DPT

The purpose of this presentation is to prepare interdisciplinary interventionists (educators, OTs, PTs, SLPs, etc.) to implement high-quality intervention techniques to support AAC users that can be used across disciplines under the guidance of a treating speech-language pathologist. The presenters will discuss evidence-based practice techniques, review coaching strategies, demonstrate intervention approaches, and coach attendees who will practice intervention techniques during the presentation.
