What is Occupational Therapy (OT)
Occupational Therapy is related services to support students, with a disability or delay, to achieve success in school. An occupational therapy practitioner understands how the body and mind work together. An occupational therapist helps children participate in and enjoy everyday school activities which include but are not limited to; a variety of fine motor skills, visual perception skills, self-help skills, upper body strength and coordination, eye hand coordination, sensory regulation and peer interaction.
If you have questions or concerns please contact Yvonne Powers, OTR for more information. You may also want to talk to your child’s teacher, your physician, other health professionals, or the school district’s director of special education about whether a referral to occupational therapy is appropriate.
