Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists lead the process in development, implementation, and coordination of the occupational therapy program. Screening, evaluation, educational program and transition planning, therapeutic intervention, and exit planning is provided for students identified with or suspected of having disabilities that interfere with accessing the educational environment. 

An Occupational Therapist is expected to review outcomes and modify intervention programs.
