The Miriam School Occupational Therapy Program is a unique and an essential component of the school curriculum. Our occupational therapists provide services to students in fine and gross motor skills improvement and in sensory integration. These services are integrated into the educational program through small and large group environments.
The Occupational Therapy Department at Miriam School is comprised of two licensed Occupational Therapists and two Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants. In addition to evaluations and individualized plans for students, the therapists provide instruction in keyboarding, physical education and endurance work. Motor skills therapy and sensory integration take place both in large group sensory diet times in a centralized therapy room, together with their peers during classroom time, and in small groups in the school’s multi-purpose room.

The goal of the occupational therapy program is to improve students’ motor skills and better integrate their sensory systems, so that they may be successful in both educational and social settings.
