Occupational and Physical Therapy in the Schools: Guidelines. Bulletin 1575.
Veron, Lisa; Poulton, Suzanne
The handbook presents guidelines for the use of occupational therapy (OT) and physical therapy (PT) with special education students in the Louisiana public schools. An introductory section defines both therapies, considers their educational background, and discusses their relationship to adapted physical education. A procedural section examines OT/PT's roles in evaluation and services, including evaluation methods, assessment areas, participation in the individualized education program, and recordkeeping. Administrative information deals with such topics as organizational structure, certification requirements, budgeting, and salaries. Among seven appendixes are forms and sample OT/PT job descriptions.
