Occupational therapists target goals related to self care and fine motor skills. These may include skills related to writing, pinching, cutting, toileting, body awareness, and self regulation. Children qualify for occupational services through the evaluation process and may qualify for a variety of service models. At Columbia Public Schools, we are able to provide services in a variety of ways depending on the qualifications and needs of individual students. Some therapists travel to homes, daycares, and preschools within the community, some provide itinerant services at a district location, and others are center based and provide services within specially designed early childhood education classrooms.
