Bearfoot OT is looking for a nature-loving, dynamic pediatric outdoor OT or COTA to join the team in August 2021 as a part time employee. 

If you are….

  • Highly motivated

  • Hard working 

  • Creative and flexible

  • Communicative

....then this might be the position for you!

Bearfoot OT offers OUTDOOR individual occupational therapy for children ages 2-15, social skills groups, and therapeutic summer camp. Bearfoot’s services are offered 100% outdoors at three sites around the Bay Area, rain or shine (so get ready to get muddy, wet, and dirty!). 

Bearfoot OT serves a variety of populations including individuals with developmental delays, ASD, sensory processing differences, ADHD, ADD, anxiety, learning disorders, self regulation difficulties and more. We do not provide a one-size-fits-all type of therapy. Intervention is individualized, client focused, evidence based, collaborative and comprehensive.

The current role requires 2 afternoons a week in SF and/or Marin to provide weekly individual OT sessions and lead social groups.

  • Planning and implementing 1:1 treatment 

  • Planning and leading social groups

  • Daily documentation

  • Written home programs

  • Progress reports
