Working closely with classroom teachers, Summit’s occupational therapists address areas
that may interfere with a student’s educational performance. These include fine and gross motor skills, oral motor function, visual motor and perceptual abilities, sensory awareness
and processing, self-care, and prevocational requisites. A variety of intervention strategies
are implemented. Handwriting support and the use of assistive technology are a major
focus of the occupational therapy program. Students are seen for individual and small
group sessions depending on their related services mandate.
