Help Deaf Students with Multiple Disabilities in OT

My students need adaptive equipment and fine motor materials to develop their motor skills, access their curriculum and participate as independently as possible in school activities.

My Students

I am an occupational therapist who works with students with multiple disabilities including deaf and hard of hearing, cerebral palsy, autism and Down syndrome. My students span grades preschool through 9th grade. Most of my students are in a dual language school (American Sign Language and English) and others are in autism programs. My students are bused in from various parts of the city and surrounding towns to receive specialized education and supports at these schools.

Due to language, learning and accessibility differences, many grade level curricular materials need to be modified for deaf and hard of hearing students and students with varied physical and cognitive needs who require simplified and adaptive resources to access the curriculum.

My Project

Typically, OTs are assigned schools in similar age groups. I am in a unique situation where I work with all grade levels where many different kinds of materials are needed to support my students’ participation in school.

I do not have the materials needed to meet the needs of the wide range of students I serve.

I have limited accessibility to resources such as adaptive equipment, self-regulation and life skills books, fine motor manipulatives and supplies for visual supports. I work with the students on fine motor skill development, self-regulation, executive functioning skill development, vocational skills, life skills (i.e. toileting and feeding) adapting and modifying materials to help students access their curriculum. The ability to have the resources listed below would greatly benefit the students by providing an array of appropriate, ready materials that are easily available during therapy sessions.
