Occupational Therapy

When your child is recommended for Occupational Therapy, the Team is looking to provide more support to help your child develop the fine motor, visual processing, sensory integration, and/or social skills to access desired school activities or "occupations." Occupational Therapists or Occupational Therapy Assistants  support academic and non-academic outcomes, including social skills, math, reading and writing (i.e., literacy), behavior management, recess, participation in sports, self-help skills, prevocational/ vocational participation, transportation, and more. Because of their expertise in activity and environmental analysis, practitioners are particularly skilled in facilitating student access to curricular and extracurricular activities. They collaborate within the education team to support student success. For more information regarding Occupational Therapy go to www.aota.org.
