School Team Member – Occupational Therapist
Starting in October, the OT will be in our school one day every two weeks. The OT will be a part of our school team and will spend time in our classrooms, gym, and playground. The OT will collaborate with teachers to provide support to groups of students in the classroom setting and develop general goals such as sensory processing skills, fine motor development (like printing,) or gross motor development (like ball skills). Group supports do not require informed consent as these groups will work on general goals and provide general recommendations.
If a student requires more individualized support, the school OT may work with students on an individual basis. In this case, you will be contacted by a member of the school team. The school OT will contact you afterward, as informed consent from parents/guardians is required for one-on-one services. Educational sessions will be offered for parents as well – watch our school newsletter for details
