HB 2618 required the Oregon Department of Education to conduct a study to identify the best methodology for determining the appropriate number of students on a workload for Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech Language Pathologists. It also directed the department to submit findings of the study to the interim committees of the Legislative Assembly related to education by January 5, 2024. The report concludes that the development and implementation of a workload methodology for occupational therapists (OTs), physical therapists (PTs), and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in a school setting is imperative for promoting sustainable and effective educational practices. 

You can access the submitted report on the ODE website here.
