Occupational Therapy

Covered Bridge Special Education District provides occupational therapists who evaluate fine, gross and sensory motor function.  The therapists assist the IEP team to develop goals which will maximize the student’s access to their school environment and curriculum.  Therapists promote student independence with recommendations about:  adaptive equipment needed for positioning/function, mobility and transfers, assistive technology, and sensory strategies/supports.
