April is Occupational Therapy Awareness Month!

April is Occupational Therapy Awareness Month, so please join us in recognizing the efforts of the OTs in our schools!

Occupational therapists help students do things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities or occupation. Every day, they help so many of our special needs students learn and succeed in what is their current occupation—children and students of District 15.

The assistance they provide their students helps to build the motor and sensory processing skills they need to participate in everything from academic activities to social/leisure pursuits and self-care. Their work enhances their students' self-esteem and self-satisfaction and helps them find personal fulfillment and meaning in life.

Please take a moment to recognize our occupational therapists and to thank them for their vital contributions to the District 15 team.
