Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) services assist students with a disability to benefit from special education. These disabilities include sensory, postural, and/or motor needs which prevent or significantly limit the student’s ability to benefit from educational opportunities.

OT staff operate under the educational model where the focus of therapy is on building skills and making modifications to support the student in the learning environment. Direct therapy is conducted, along with an emphasis on indirect services, which include the training of educational team members working daily with the student to assure that OT interventions are ongoing.
