“Occupational therapy practitioners have important knowledge and expertise to share. Take advantage of it.”

What Parents Need to Know About School-Based Occupational Therapy
By Ashley Opp Hofmann

When a school informs parents that it recommends occupational therapy for their child, parents tend to have a lot of questions. Their first question?

What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is a health profession in which therapists and therapy assistants help individuals to do and engage in the specific activities that make up daily life. For children and youth in schools, occupational therapy works to ensure that a student can participate in the full breadth of school activities—from paying attention in class; concentrating on the task at hand; holding a pencil, musical instrument, or book in the easiest way; or just behaving appropriately in class.

Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help students perform particular tasks necessary for participation or learning. “The whole purpose of school-based occupational therapy is to help kids succeed,” says pediatric occupational therapist Leslie Jackson. Occupational therapy practitioners don’t just focus on the specific problem that a child’s disability may present; rather, they look at the whole child and tackle individual tasks, helping students find ways to do the things they need and want to do.

Usually, occupational therapy is provided to students with disabilities. But occupational therapy can be made available to other children who are having specific problems in school. Occupational therapy practitioners also work to provide consultation to teachers about how classroom design affects attention, why particular children behave inappropriately at certain times, and where best to seat a child based on his or her learning style or other needs. Occupational therapy may be recommended for an individual student for reasons that might be affecting his or learning or behavior, such as motor skills, cognitive processing, visual or perceptual problems, mental health concerns, difficulties staying on task, disorganization, or inappropriate sensory responses.

A common manifestation of difficulties in school involves handwriting, in many cases because this is a key “occupation” that students must master to succeed in school. A teacher might notice that a student cannot write legibly or has serious problems in other motor tasks. The occupational therapy practitioner can work with the teacher to evaluate the child to identify the underlying problems that may be contributing to handwriting difficulty. The occupational therapy practitioner looks at the child’s skills and other problems (including behavior), in addition to his or her visual, sensory, and physical capabilities. They also take into account the school, home, and classroom environments to find ways to improve the handwriting or to identify ways the child can compensate, such as using a computer.

Accessing school-based occupational therapy is fairly straightforward, but it is the school team who makes the decision of whether or not a student requires occupational therapy. Not every student needs occupational therapy, even if the student has a disability. Those who do may have problems that the teacher can address after consulting with an occupational therapy practitioner and modifying their teaching technique or the environment for the entire class.

The education team could recommend one-on-one services. Usually these services are integrated as much as possible into the child’s routine to promote better integration of skills.

Students with disabilities have been able to receive occupational therapy at school since the 1975 passage of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which served as the original impetus for school-based occupational therapy. The law stipulates that students with disabilities must have access to the occupational therapy if they need it to benefit from special education. In 2001, Congress passed the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act which requires schools to improve the academic achievement of all students, including those with disabilities. In 2004, the reauthorization of IDEA extended the availability of occupational therapy services to all students, not just those with disabilities, in order to fully participate in school.

Parents, though, have a lot of the responsibility when it comes to their child’s success in school, and their involvement becomes doubly important when an occupational therapy practitioner enters the picture. First, Jackson suggests getting to know the teachers and occupational therapist.

“Share information about what your child does at home, raise whatever concerns you have, find out what sorts of things you can do with your child to help him or her succeed,” she says.

“Occupational therapy practitioners have important knowledge and expertise to share. Take advantage of it.”

As you may know, Tuesday, June 8th, the State of New Jersey and the City of Camden will be conducting their primary election. As with other election days, most of our school buildings will be used for voting.

As we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19, our primary focus is to keep our students and staff safe. To maintain these high levels of safety, we will be implementing a full remote learning day for all staff and students on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. Staff and
students may resume back to normal in-person schedules on Wednesday, June 9, 2021.

Racism still has no place on our Street – or any street.

Sesame Street was built on diversity, equity, inclusion, and, especially kindness.

We stand with our BIPOC communities and allies around the globe as we continue to speak up for racial justice and to imagine a world that is smarter, stronger, and kinder – for everyone.

[05/25/21]   Here are some tips and reminders to help your student be healthy and active as the summer starts:

Try to get your child up and out of their seat every 90 minutes . Remind them to get up and stretch, take a brisk walk outside, or do a quick scavenger hunt.
There are also plenty of free movement break videos for kids online – check out Go Noodle: Good Energy, Stand Up Kids, and The Learning Station.

Turn off electronic devices during dinner and before bed to get a better night’s sleep. You could also designate one day of the weekend to be a “screen-free day” and spend time outdoors, read, or do fun activities together as a family.

When you do spend time in front of the T.V., have a family competition and see who can do the most jumping jacks or push-ups during the commercial breaks.

We hope you find these resources helpful!

Smooth morning arrival period - students who arrive at school with time to spare have the opportunity to settle into the classroom, prepare their materials and focus their minds on the lessons to come.
Important information – a typical school day starts with announcements and introductions to new lessons and concepts. Students who show up late may miss out on important details and be unprepared for future class events or key learning concepts.
Let's finish this school year off strong, with the focus of "On Time. Every Time". 💙💛💙💛💙💛

Dear CCSD Families,

As we draw closer to the end of the school year, we are excited to transition into our Summer Enrichment and Bridge program, and our Credit Recovery program both beginning July 6, 2021.

These programs will be available to all K-12 Camden students and will operate five days (5) a week for four (4) weeks both virtually and in person. We have designed our summer programming to meet not only the needs of our students but also to help them prepare for a successful return to in-person learning this fall, September 2021.
