Occupational Therapy Services

Occupational therapists provide services to infants (0-3 years old), who have or are at risk for developmental delays, and to school age students (3-21 years old) who have motor or sensorimotor challenges that impact their participation in educational activities. They utilize strategies for mental and physical health and well-being by promoting occupation within daily routines through direct intervention, integrated activities, coaching and consultation with school staff and families. Occupational Therapists provide expertise to teams and students, to improve student performance in learning environments throughout the school (e.g., playgrounds, classrooms, lunchrooms, bathrooms); to help develop participation skills for secondary transition; and optimize student performance throughout the school day through specific adaptations and accommodations.
