Occupational/Physical Therapy is provided in the school setting to assist the student in accessing educational services and to benefit from their educational program. Therapists do not aim to cure, but to assist the student to function in the school setting. Educational goals are developed to access core curriculum. Therapists share their knowledge and skills with school personnel regarding activities that are educationally appropriate and functional.
OT/PT Operational Network
A collaborative opportunity for school-based OTs, PTs and related providers. All districts welcome! One representative from each district/school is recommended to share ideas from the meeting.
With the changes in service delivery due to the pandemic, the SELPA is offering more frequent meetings to support the OTs and PTs in Ventura County. All meetings will be conducted virtually and on varied dates/times so that more people can attend. Certificates of attendance will be available for registered participants who complete the meeting. Some meetings will be recorded for repeated viewing. There is no cost for these workshops, however, online registration is required.
(Email Joanna at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to “share”.)
