Co-Treating in a School Setting

Co-treatment within school settings can prove to be a model that benefits students and therapists alike.

Frances Newman, OTR/L, and Joni Adams, M.A. CCC-SLP, have recently delved into the idea of co-treatment, exploring how it can improve and benefit treatments within speech and language therapy.

So, what exactly is co-treatment? Co-treatment sessions are when two therapists from different disciplines work together with a client (be they child or adult) in order to maximize therapeutic goals and progress.

The duo have detailed notonly how well co-treatment sessions work for their students, but also how they were able to support each other and learn from one another’s knowledge thanks to the process.

Read more about Frances and Joni’s work in their detailed article, here.
