Panel Discussion: Ohio Supervisors of Related Service Professionals Share the

Workload Approaches They Use to Assign Caseloads


Inviting all related services professionals, intervention specialists, and special education administrators!

The Office for Exceptional Children’s Related Services Education Program Specialist, Bernadette Laughlin, is super excited to present the sixth Ohio Related Services Virtual Meet-Up for 2021-22. This event is designed for Ohio’s related service and special education professionals but all are welcome to attend.

We will continue the February 2022 discussion on service provider workload/caseload. We are excited to present a panel of related services supervisors from Ohio’s urban school districts. Ohio’s large urban school districts present many types of challenges and have many students who need related services. Our panelists will share their own approaches to using the workload process to assign caseloads to related service professionals.

We welcome our panelists for the March 2022 Ohio Related Services Meet-Up:

Torie C. Ciccarone, SLP Supervisor, Columbus City Schools

Amy Comford, OT/PT Supervisor, Columbus City Schools

Lynn Simonetti, OT/PT Supervisor, Columbus City Schools

Davida Swanson, Lead SLP, Cincinnati Public Schools

Karen Thompson-Repas, OT/PT Director, Cleveland Metropolitan School District

Erin Zink, Lead for OT/PT Staff, Cincinnati Public Schools


Attendees will be able to post questions in the chat feature or raise their hands to ask questions during the Meet-Up. Join us for this opportunity to learn and connect with the Office for Exceptional Children, Ohio’s related service professionals, and supervisors. Feel free to send this invitation link to anyone who may be interested. Registration is not required.
