April is Occupational Therapy Month

What is occupational therapy? How is it provided in the school environment? What areas are addressed by school-based occupational therapists? I’m frequently asked questions about my services. The word “occupational” can be a bit confusing. There are many ways to explain school-based occupational therapy. To do a good job in providing answers to these questions, I’d like to direct your attention to some well prepared articles by the American Occupational Therapy Association. In building awareness about services, you can become an informed consumer whether you’re a parent or teacher. My hope is that you can better advocate for services if you have a concern about your child or student.
