Occupational Therapy

School-based occupational therapy (OT) is provided to help students increase their independence with their primary occupations, which are to learn and play. Children in school may receive occupational therapy services to improve their fine motor, visual motor, visual perceptual, self-care and/or sensory processing skills. In the school setting, this often looks like a lot of fun since we use high-interest activities such as arts and crafts, games, and toys to engage children in challenging tasks and target specific underlying skill areas.
 
If a student has a qualifying need, occupational therapists may provide services directly to the student either in the classroom or therapy room. Services could also involve consultation with the student’s educational team and/or family.
