OT/Social Work for Special Needs Students

Occupational Therpay

Our licensed occupational therapists work with students in a number of areas to promote functional independence in the classroom and school setting.  The goal is to improve the student's ability to perform tasks requiring visual perceptual skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, sensory processing skills, organization, and self care. Our therapists aim to give students the tools they need to successfully participate in a school and community settings.

Social Work Counseling

The school social worker plays a vital role working with school staff, students, families and community agencies in addressing the barriers that limit a student from receiving full benefits from their educational experience. Social work services are provided on a classroom, small group and individual basis. The goal of the social work program is to enhance the acquisition of social thinking and social skills. Individual sessions are tailored to the specific needs of the student. Small group sessions address areas such as anxiety, self-regulation, friendships building and problem solving.
