School Based Services

Willow Tree OT provides school based services to the local school system, including Pre-K through grade 12. These services are decided upon by the educational team and must be educationally relevant. School based OT's observe, assess, and address the child’s strengths and needs within the natural school settings (e.g., classroom, lunchroom, playground) in order to support the student’s educational program. Services may be directed to the child and on behalf of the child in the school environment (e.g., training educational staff). A child who is receiving school based OT services may also qualify for clinic based OT services which typically assess and address the child’s strengths and needs in a clinic setting in order to support participation in life activities. The focus in non-school settings may be more varied and may or may not address specific educational needs
