Public School Therapy

Public School Therapy Services

OT Connection contracts with local public schools, including charter schools to provide pediatric therapists (Speech, OT,and  PT) to supplement school staffing requirements for students with Individualized Educational Programs. (IEP).
OT Connection currently provides therapy services to over 15 area elementary, middle, and high schools.  Therapy services focus on educationally related needs to assist children with achieving a greater level of independence in the classroom and educational setting.
IEP Goals and Objectives are functionally based and measurable to allow students to make significant progress in a variety of educational areas, including: handwriting/keyboarding skills, upper body/hand use, self-care skills, adaptive attention and self-regulation techniques, bilateral coordination, motor planning/task completion, adaptative techniques, equipment, and other modifications as needed to ensure the greatest level of success and independence in the educational setting.

PUBLIC SCHOOL SERVICES INCLUDES:

  • Evaluations/3-Year Re-evaluations
  • Consultation/Screenings
  • Direct Service/In-Class and pull-out
  • Small Group Treatment
  • Collaboration with IEP team members and other school staff

Additionally, we are prepared to assist your child’s school as needed in the administration of outside/secondary evaluations, re-evaluation’s, MDTs, class and individual screenings.

We also serve as a referral source for families who are interested in receiving or supplementing therapy for their child in a private setting, and can provide your school with informational brochures to share with these families.

In some cases your child’s therapy is covered by the school, but we are contracted with most insurance companies so in the event the school is not required to cover this cost then we are able to file to your private insurance.
