Where (state and setting) and your years of exp.?   We,school based OTs are trying to get a raise equal to the teachers recent raise--and we're told support it with research..so, here I am.  Please know that I won't share anything but the info. to the questions I have asked above...Thanks in Advance--LOL!

    There is information comparing OT salaries by region and practice area posted on the internet.  Also you can look at the 2006 AOTA Workforce and Compensation Survey which shows recent average salaries according to practice area and region. This is on AOTAs website. More importantly then what are OTs currently paid is what should we be paid.  Are you on the teacher's salary schedule or how is your salary determined?  Is there a difference in the educational credits that OTs have vs. teachers?  What are the other specialist in you district getting paid: SLPs, School Psychologists, PTs, etc..?  This information might be useful for building your case.
