Occupational Therapist – Telehealth
Work remotely on a flexible schedule — be an online OT!
PresenceLearning offers occupational therapists (OTs) a flexible, remote opportunity to work with kids with special needs — and grow their careers. Coordinating with an on-site assistant, our skilled independent contractors work with K-12 students and their IEP teams via live videoconferencing, using the same techniques and materials as traditional on-site services. Our online solution was designed with everything needed to deliver therapy: high-fidelity audio and video for live interactions, a large online library of evidence-based therapy activities and games, and scheduling and progress-monitoring tools.
Work the hours you want. Let us know when you are available to work (generally during normal school hours), so PresenceLearning can identify opportunities for you that fit your schedule. Being licensed in more than one state offers you increased access to opportunities, even in different time zones.
