Attendees of the April 3 American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) 94th Annual Conference and Expo in Baltimore, Md, will have the opportunity to take advantage of career opportunities and tools provided by PediaStaff, a nationwide staffing company focused on the placement of pediatric and school-based clinicians.

In addition to stationing recruiters at its booth (#837) to discuss career opporutnities, PediaStaff notes in a recent news release that it will be handing out PediaStaff OT Thumballs, a design effort between Answers in Motion and PediaStaff customized solely for the AOTA 2014 conference. Each of its panels feature a word or phrase, graphic or photo. Once the ball is caught, the catcher must do or discuss whatever is under their right thumb. The item is intended to stimulate conversation, improve social interactions, and develop communication skills.

The release states that PediStaff places OTs nationwide in both direct and contract positions in a range of setting, including clinics, hospitals, school systems, and home health.

PediStaff places its contractors though the back-office services of Top Echelon Contracting (TEC).
