What does an occupational therapist do?
For an educational team to provide complete and comprehensive services to students, there must be an occupational therapist contributing as part of the group. Occupational therapists help students partake in day to day activities that a student might be involved in. They ensure that students who need assistance can fully participate in a school setting and have an equal opportunity to succeed academically and socially.
How does occupational therapy online work?
VocoVision’s online occupational therapists can provide a wide range of services including consultation, evaluation, monitoring, supervision, and intervention. Using remote technology, remote occupational therapists can observe a student in the classroom unobtrusively and offer strategies so that teachers can help the child with the use of self-regulation skills, have more appropriate interactions with peers, or increase participation in activities. VocoVision’s technology allows OTs to virtually evaluate areas including:
- Fine motor and visual skills
- Wheelchair prescriptions
- Neurological assessments
- Adaptive equipment prescriptions
- Ergonomic assessments
When not working directly with students, teleservice occupational therapy providers can work with teachers and administrators to monitor, supervise, and implement treatment plans for students.
