Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) services in the schools are intended to assist students in becoming as independent as possible in daily tasks. Occupational Therapists are trained in the structure and function of the mind and body, and in the effects of illness and injury on children's' abilities to function in daily life activities.

OT practitioners may instruct and assist in compensatory techniques, changes in positioning and/or seating, adaptive equipment recommendations, instruction in therapeutic activities, and other interventions to facilitate optimum independence. 


The educational Occupational Therapist works with students from birth to 21 who have a variety of disabilities, including prematurity, autism, perceptual and visual disorders, traumatic brain injury, arthritis, cerebral palsy, learning disorders, and sensory integration disorders.
