SCHOOL BASED OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY `
School-based occupational therapy practitioners use meaningful activities to help children participate in what they need or want to do in order to promote physical and mental health and well being. Occupational therapy addresses the physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and sensory components of performance. In schools the focus is on academics, social participation, and transitions / work skills. Occupational therapy's expertise includes activity and environmental analysis and modifications with the goal of reducing the barriers to participation.
