Occupational and Physical Therapy
School based occupational & physical therapy is provided when a student requires this related service to fully benefit from their education. School based therapists focus on removing barriers from a student’s ability to learn and helping that student develop skills that increase his/her independence in the school environment.
Using direct and indirect services, as well as assistive technology and environmental modifications, school therapists collaborate with parents, teachers and other educational staff to help implement a child’s planned program.
In addition, therapists identify and obtain special equipment and train school staff on ways to incorporate interventions and practice of motor skills into the classroom schedule.
School occupational and physical therapy services are provided to eligible students from early childhood through the transition program.
