Default Re: NYC Dept Of Education Occupational Therapy

The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) provides school-based Occupational and Physical Therapy in both District 75 and General Education school settings.

Occupational and physical therapy services are provided to students mandated to receive such services as designated on their Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs).

Occupational & Physical Therapists

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) identifies occupational and physical therapy as related services for eligible children ages 3-21 who require assistance to benefit from a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is designed to maintain, improve, or restore function of students in all education-related activities, including neuro-musculoskeletal function; motor function including fine motor, oral motor, and visual motor integration; sensory and perceptual function; cognitive, and psychosocial function.

Activities emphasize independence in daily living skills and school participation in various settings including classroom, bathroom, cafeteria, and playground.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy emphasizes physical function of gross motor skills and independence in different settings.

Physical therapists increase a studentís ability to participate in various school functions by remediating or compensating for musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, or cardiopulmonary impairments.

Physical therapists employ various techniques including addressing deficits in body structure and function, suggesting adaptations to physical tasks, recommending assistive devices, and adapting the environment.
