    Occupational Therapy is an essential, integrated component of the LKS program.  Our occupational therapist provides individual treatment, small group treatment, integrated, and group stress management. Sensory integration and a variety of O.T. techniques are used to promote an adequate neurological foundation for the development of functional skills. Stress Management/Relaxation group sessions provide instruction and practice for raising self-awareness and development of self-management abilities. Identified students typically benefit from one or two 45-minute individual sessions per week, and one group Stress Management/Relaxation class per week.  Identified students typically include those with aspects of Asperger’s Disorder or PDD-NOS, learning disabilities, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, dysgraphia, sensory defensiveness, Tourettes Syndrome, mood disorders, OCD, and other processing or functional compromises.
