Occupational and Physical Therapy
In Marion, Polk, and Yamhill Counties, therapy services are provided
through focused services to provide supports to the educational participation and progress of
students. Staff are licensed physical therapists, occupational
therapists, or therapy assistants.
School Occupational Therapy and School Physical Therapy Services are available to children and youth with a wide range of disabilities, via our member school districts. Occupational and Physical Therapy are defined as related services and are designed to support the educational program, identified on an IFSP or IEP.
Occupational & Physical Therapists can significantly increase the success of a student through the development and implementation of strategies that assist in making the curriculum and/or instructional environment accessible and support the education program of the child/student.
Regional Services for districts includes a lending library of adaptive equipment and assistive technology devices for students who receive services through WESD programs.
Equipment borrowed from WESD Regional Lending Library is for use with students who are eligible as orthropedically impaired and is needed to meet their educational goals . Requests for equipment are made by the therapist serving that student.
