Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy helps students improve their ability to function in school.

Occupational Therapy is provided according to the IEP.  It is typically recommended for once or twice a week, 30 minute individual sessions, in the classroom or the OT room.

The Occupational Therapist works with the classroom teacher to integrate her services with class expectations and routines.

Occupational Therapy is provided at the Lorge School by a master's level occupational therapist to all children who have been evaluated and approved for services.  Occupational therapy helps students improve their ability to function in the school setting in areas of self care, sensory processing, fine and gross motor skills, perceptual motor and coping skills.  Examples of treatment areas are; shoe tying, attention span, writing, cutting, puzzles, strength, coordination, and dealing with frustration.  An occupational therapist may also provide adaptations in the classroom to facilitate successful participation.
