Physical and Occupational Therapy Services

As related service providers, physical and occupational therapists in Fairfax County Public Schools work to assure that students in special education benefit from their educational program. Therapists work closely with teachers and other members of the school team to identify and establish solutions and/or adaptations that help students to participate as fully as possible in their school settings. As team members, therapists share information and integrate their specialized knowledge in child development, motor learning and task performance to provide a unique perspective within the educational environment.
