River School Therapies provides licensed and Certified Occupational Therapists and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants to work closely with the district to ensure the chosen treatment plan will be followed and monitored to achieve the stated goals.
River certified OTs and COTAs attend to the multi-sensory, self-help, and fine motor needs of each student from exploring tactile input options to trialing adapted pencils for hand-writing goals so that students perform at their highest possible level by building their independence to participate in all school activities that bring meaning to their lives.
River Occupational Therapists are trained to look at the whole child- including the psychological, physical, emotional, social, and sensory abilities.
