Occupational and Physical Therapy is provided to C.E.S. students enrolled in each of our school-based programs. Intervention is provided based upon the goals and objectives identified in the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). Our therapists use a variety of strategies in their therapeutic approaches. Some strategies include:
  • Sensory Integrative Approach
  • Sensory Modulation
  • Therapeutic Listening
  • Handwriting Without Tears
  • Core, Vestibular, Bilateral, and Movement Protocols
  • Yoga
Therapists work with students individually and in groups in the therapy rooms and classrooms. They also collaborate with classroom teachers to implement strategies during instructional activities. The goal of the OT/PT program is for students to be active participants in their educational program. Therapists provide intervention to help students attain and maintain attention, manage materials, demonstrate appropriate behavior and complete assignments. They also impact the student’s ability to be successful completing various activities of daily living and to participate in community and work activities.
