Guidelines for Occupational Therapy Practice in Educational Environments in the State of Delaware.
Delaware State Dept. of Public Instruction, Dover. Exceptional Children/Special Programs Div.
These guidelines are intended to direct the provision of quality occupational therapy services in educational environments in Delaware. The first section presents a discussion of definitions concerned with: (1) free appropriate public education; (2) related services; (3) occupational therapy services; (4) physical therapy services; and (5) relationship of occupational therapy and physical therapy (comparing the primary focus of each service). Specific guidelines are then presented for the following areas: referral, assessment (including screening, evaluation, and reevaluation); student-related planning (the Individualized Education Program and the Occupational Therapy Intervention Plan); intervention; transition services; discontinuation; documentation; and management. An appendix presents the standards of the American Occupational Therapy Association for occupational therapy services in schools. Includes five references. (DB)
