In school, your child will have many tasks or “occupations” such as listening, writing, reading, copying written information, participating in PE class, playing with friends, etc. OT is a related service that addresses the underlying skills needed for your child to be successful in his/her daily school occupations. At our school, we believe that a team approach between parents, teachers, and related service providers is an optimal way to support your child’s development.
We could go into your child’s classroom to conduct group activities (universal strategies). Your child could also receive direct services in small groups or an individual therapy. Worry not because if your child is going to be provided with any specific OT service, you will be contacted immediately, and you will have to consent to the services.
Please contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or you would like activity ideas to carryover at home. We would be more than happy to help!
