Jane Case-Smith, EdD, OT, FAOTA
Dr. Case-Smith is Professor and Director in the Occupational Therapy Division at The Ohio State University. Dr. Case-Smith is a strong contributor to research in the area of occupational therapy practice with children. Her evidence based approach to systematic inquiry has made impact in multiple areas including sensory integration intervention, autism, service delivery and school based models for handwriting instruction. Dr. Case-Smith’s willingness to grapple with topics close to the heart of occupational therapy practitioners has given her a perspective on the profession that is forward thinking and comprehensive. Her leadership has been nationally acknowledged by the A Jean Ayres Research Award and her international speaking. Dr. Case-Smith is the editor of the primary text used in occupational therapy education for pediatrics, Occupational Therapy for Children, and has published over 50 articles and 25 chapters. Texas Woman’s University is honored to have her with us as the 21st Vanderkooi Endowed Lecturer and we look forward to her message on our future roles in the ever-changing landscape of occupational therapy practice.
About the Vanderkooi Endowed Lectureship
The Vanderkooi Endowed Lectureship was established in 1994 to honor the first program director of occupational therapy at Texas Woman’s University, Fanny B. Vanderkooi. It celebrates the School of Occupational Therapy’s legacy of commitment to vision, professional values, and leadership development in occupational therapy education, practice and research. This years's event ran very smoothly with 250 in attendance, inclusive of students.
