Welcome to Occupational Therapy!
PURPOSE OF OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY IN SCHOOLS: Occupational therapy in school settings are provided to facilitate students to actively participate in the special education program.
Results intend that students reach a state of physical, mental, and social well-being; that they identify and realize aspirations, satisfy needs, and cope with the environment with special strategies.
Intervention is directed on behalf of each individual student.
However, occupational therapy practitioners will offer strategies, equipment or approaches to be used daily in the classroom.
Thereby, occupational therapy contributes to the organizational efficiency, policies, procedures, or resources for teachers and administrators to provide educational services to all students.
