Occupational Therapy (OT)
 

Alyssa Anderson, OTR/L
I'm the occupational therapist at school servicing birth to 12th grade in the district. This is my 3rd year working at Redwood Area Schools and I'm excited for the 2018-2019 school year!


What is school OT? help students perform tasks necessary for participation or learning at school. This could include finding different strategies, practicing, breaking down the task, strengthening muscles, and/or modifying the activity.  OT is considered a related service meaning that a student must qualify for special education and have a need to receive OT services.


What services do I provide for students?
  • Handwriting skills
  • Self-cares
  • Seating/positioning
  • Visual perceptual problems
  • Self-regulation
  • Sensory processing
  • Organization skills
  • Attending and focus
