This month we are celebrating and thanking our 16 occupational therapists and four occupational therapy assistants who serve students with special needs. OTs and OTAs support a student’s ability to participate in daily school activities. They support students’ academic achievement and promote positive behaviors necessary for learning. School occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants focus on the students’ strengths and assist with designing and implementing programming to improve inclusion and accessibility. Additionally, they play a critical role in educating parents, educators, administrators and other staff members.
