School-based occupational therapy (O.T.) is a supportive service to help students benefit from special education services.  School-based occupational therapy is considered a related service to special education by federal law, therefore is not a single service available to students.  

In order to receive school-based occupational therapy, students must have a current individual education plan (IEP) and show a need for additional support to meet the goals set on the plan.  

School-based occupational therapists support students, in all stages of education from birth to age 21, in many different educational settings.

My name is Kaley Czech, and I have enjoyed my career as an occupational therapist for over 10 years. I worked in a pediatric occupational therapy outpatient clinic prior to beginning my journey in a school-based practice.  I have worked with students who have a variety of disabilities and diagnoses, and I enjoy helping them succeed in one of their natural environments.
