  • Direct therapy will be provided via Google Meet or Zoom (family specific) The time will depend on service minutes written in the IEP. The time will not occur when the child has a virtual class. 

  • Indirect therapy will be provided via email/phone calls to parents for instructions and home program recommendations

  • A parent will need to be present during the video conference sessions to help with instructing the child of what the therapist is working on with them. The child's specific goals will be reviewed via video conference and/or phone call with the parentl.

  • The OT will also be using See Saw to provide activities and home programming. Students will be expected to complete home programming given via paper or electronically and upload to SeeSaw. This will be the OT’s way to monitor the child’s work and progress. The OT will send paper material home as soon as that is possible. 

  • Virtual IEP meetings will occur, we will meet online as a team as if it were in person. We will schedule them and get you the materials electronically for now.
