My Students

The kids on my caseload are full of positive energy and strive to be better daily. All kids I serve have an IEP that call for occupational therapy intervention. Most of the kids that I work learn daily in self-contained classrooms. Others are in general education but are pulled out for targeted instruction for certain subjects. Kids on my caseload have various diagnoses ranging from ADHD, autism and developmental delay. All the kids on my caseload want to do their best and fit in with their peers. With me being the occupational therapist for several students throughout the building, displaying a range of strengths and weaknesses, I want to be able to provide them with resources that will address their individual needs.

For this upcoming school year, I would like to enhance my therapy sessions with additional tools.

We are located in an area of the nation's capital that is up and coming, with plenty of resources outside of the building. However, inside of the building is where the resources for this project are needed.

My Project

Most of these kids don't have access to these games at home. The games that are chosen work on underlying skills needed to reach their occupational therapy goals. Having access to these games during therapy sessions gives them an alternative way to increase their fine motor skills and visual motor skills. They also target problem solving, turn taking, following directions and sequencing, which are all needed to succeed in the classroom and life! After a full occupational therapy session, these games would be a welcomed change of pace. The games would unbeknownst to the kids further their progression towards attaining their occupational therapy IEP goals.
