What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy and physical therapy as educational support services can be quite different from those same services in a clinic or hospital. School-based therapists focus on removing barriers from students’ ability to learn, helping students develop skills which increase their independence in the school environment, and educating school personnel about the different considerations required for students with disabilities. Everything the therapist does with students in school must be educationally relevant. The therapist evaluates, assesses and accommodates functional abilities of students in school classrooms, hallways and other designated areas. Please refer to the attached document for specific differences.
