Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is provided to students who qualify to help improve a child's development in areas that they may have difficulty with that impede their ability to experience success as a student in the school and classroom environment. These areas may include fine motor development, gross motor development, visual-perceptual skills, visual-motor skills, self-help skills, and other sensory needs.

Therapy sessions are goal drive and tailored to follow the student's individual needs and goals. Sessions are provided during the school day, either individually or within a group setting, depending on the child's needs.
