Occupational Therapy

School based occupational therapy (OT) focuses on academic achievement and social participation within the school setting. OT is a field that helps people engage in meaningful “occupations” – which for students includes classroom tasks such as handwriting, participation, using manipulatives, as well as independent skills such as clothing fasteners and lunch containers. OT’s expertise includes activity and environmental analysis and modification, with a goal of reducing the barriers to participation within the classroom environment, so that students can be as independent as possible. We can provide teacher training, direct therapy, group therapy, and consultations.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapists work as part of the school team to support a student’s ability to access their educational environment. PTs are movement specialists who help students be able to successfully participate in a variety of physical activities throughout the school day. Deficits in gross motor skills can affect learning and social participation by hindering access to education and create feelings of isolation from peers.

Behavioral Therapy

ABA is the study of human behavior, is evidence-based, and holds the belief that all students can learn and grow to reach their greatest potential. In the school setting, Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) support teachers and students in the school setting to reduce challenging behaviors, promote positive behaviors, and increase independence across the school day. Behavioral supports can include direct support, teacher coaching, and creation of behavior plans.

Psychological Services

School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students’ ability to learn and teachers’ ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning and behavior, to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.

Music Therapy

Music therapists use music interventions to support students’ growth in non-musical goal areas. In the school setting, music therapists can support a variety of goal areas on the IEP; music therapy can also improve attention and increase motivation to participate in other aspects of the school setting. Music therapists use interventions such as singing, instrument play, movement to music, improvisation, musical games, songwriting, and music listening.
