Education

OPAF’s educational programs are top-notch and truly unique in that they provide practitioners with unprecedented access to those with physical and mobility challenges in a real-life, yet-controlled setting.

 

Educational programs are held in conjunction with First Clinics. OPAF is accredited in 40 states to provide CEU credits to physical therapists, PTAs, and O&P professionals for First Things First, First Stride, First Swim, and First Dance.

 

There is vast opportunity in further developing OPAF’s educational programs in the coming years. Based on available funding, OPAF would like to hire an Educational Director, pursue Instructor Certification in more states/disciplines, build its base of Certified Instructors, and broaden its reach to more occupational therapists, social workers, and more.
