Occupational Therapist & Physical Therapist
ROLE IN SCHOOL & IEP TEAM:
Provide direct motor therapy interventions to students through SPED services, in the school based setting. For the purpose of enhancing students ability to function and access curriculum and their school environment independently. Plan with the IEP team for annual goals as well as train other staff how to use the motor interventions or modifications with the student throughout the school day.
