New Financial Aid for Wisconsin OT/COTA Practitioner Coursework
Daut-Jacobson Occupational Therapy Continuing Education Award
Lila Daut worked as an occupational therapist in Milwaukee, WI as a rehabilitation specialist and supervisor. She received her occupational therapy degree from Texas Woman’s University. After decades of work she retired in 2015. Lila has a strong passion for occupational therapy and knows how important evidence-based practice is for the profession. Because of rising costs and expenses for continuing education courses, Lila has established a new award that will help OT practitioners attend continuing education courses and advanced certification training.
The Lila Daut-Allan Jacobson Occupational Therapy Continuing Education award provides an annual award of $500 to an OT or COTA practitioner who is seeking financial aid for continuing education coursework.
While any continuing education course will be considered, priority will be given to advanced certification in the fields of:
- Certified Low Vision Therapist (CLVT)
- Certified Hand Therapy (CHT)
- Neuro-Developmental Therapy Certification (NDT)
- Certified Driver’s Rehabilitation Specialist (CDRS)
- Gerontology Certification.
All continuing education courses must be approved by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).
