Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy may be provided as a related service, to a student who meets the criteria of an academic disability which limits their ability to fully participate within the classroom.  

Pulaski Community Schools provides Occupational Therapy services at each school within the district.  

The role of an occupational therapist is:

  • to evaluate and serve students with whom parents or teachers have identified concerns with functional performance including, but not limited to:  self-help, fine motor skills, visual perceptual skills, and sensory development

  • to assist with program modifications, such as the implementation of assistive technology

  • to consult and collaborate with parents and teachers about delays in self-help, fine motor, visual perceptual, and sensory development and how this may affect academic progress.

An occupational therapist provides services:

  • individually, in small groups or by providing whole-class lessons

  • in the therapy room, regular education classroom or special education classroom

  • through monitoring and consultation

  • by supporting classroom and special education teachers in providing interventions targeted towards improving self-help, fine motor, visual perception, and sensory processing.
