Occupational Therapy

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational Therapy is a health profession to help students engage in the specific activities that make up daily life.  Occupational Therapy ensures that students can participate in the full breadth of school activities-from paying attention in class; concentration on the task at hand; holding a pencil; or just behaving appropriately in class.  Occupational Therapy may be recommended for an individual student for reasons that might be affecting his learning or behavior, such as motor skills, cognitive processing, visual or perceptual problems, mental health concerns, difficulties staying or task, disorganization, or
inappropriate sensory responses.
