The District provides occupational therapy to students who are eligible under an Individualized Education Plan.
School-based Occupational Therapists (OTs) are part of the special education team at each site. Occupational therapy is a related service that can be provided if a student has a recognized disability or disorder that adversely affects his/her educational performance and includes developmental, academic and functional skills. Related services, such as OT, are provided when needed to support the student in meeting his/her educational goals. When OT is recommended through the IEP team, the level of OT support is dependent upon the student’s educational goals.
