Occupational therapy helps students with sensory, perceptual, and motor problems better meet the daily demand of their environment. For the children and young adults at Whittier School, one very important “occupation”is that of a student. The occupation of student requires many skills, and includes access to classroom curricula, school activities, and to the many routines a student engages in on a regular basis.
Occupational therapists support students in the following occupational performance areas/expected school activities:
Educational Accessibility / Academic Readiness / Legible Quality of Written Work
Social / Emotional / Behavioral
Vocational / Pre-Vocational
