Like at the Lower/Middle School, Occupational and Speech/Language therapies are built right into the school day. High school students don’t have a required sensory diet, but both therapists pull students out and push into classes for services. They work on gross and fine motor skills in OT, utilizing equipment that they can access on their own as adults. Students at this age become familiar with their sensory and other needs and learn how to meet them on their own.
Social skills work is continued for this age group, led by our speech pathologist and counselor/school psychologist. Our speech/language pathologist also pulls students out for individual or group work, and pushes into classes.
