In the school setting, children can receive similar therapy services as we discussed in our previous post – Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Behavioral supports to help children be successful and achieve their goals in the school environment.
In addition, Individualized Educational Programs (IEP) and 504 plans can be set up for children who have a diagnosis to provide them with further supports and accommodations so a child can be successful and achieve their goals in the school environment.
Ultimately what school services your child qualifies for will be determined by multiple factors including your child’s diagnosis, medical history, doctor/pediatrician, physical location, and availability of services.
I want to quickly note that these services I am discussing are based on school services that are provided in North America and may vary in their description or scope of practice depending on where you are located.
See you soon!
