Occupational Therapy Resources

Occupational therapists, in the school system, are support staff who work with students who are eligible for special education and have been identified with visual motor, fine motor, postural and/or motor needs, self-care and sensory processing deficits that significantly impact the student's ability to participate in their educational program.  Once found eligible for services, therapists work directly with students and/or consult with their teachers to adapt and modify the classroom environment as well as classroom tasks.
