• Occupational Therapy

    Occupational therapy is a health profession in which therapists help individuals to do and engage in the specific activities that make up daily life. In a school setting, the OT may be involved by facilitating any or all of the following areas that may interfere with a child's educational performance: self-help skills (feeding, dressing, hygiene); fine, gross, and visual motor skills; sensory processing and visual processing skills; positioning, functional mobility and transitions functional communication through alternative methods; adaptive devices/equipment; and using educational tools/toys. OT services are not intended to satisfy the medical needs of a student and, therefore, may not meet the total therapy needs of the student. However, the student's family may wish to pursue therapy services outside the educational setting.
