Mrs. Lauren's Occupational Therapy Page
Due to the ongoing closure of all schools by Governor Murphy in response to COVID-19, related services will now be provided remotely. For those of you who's child I have been providing school based occupational therapy services to for the 2019-2020 school year, your child's related services will be provided via Zoom. I have already sent out an email providing you with your child's weekly OT schedule and will provide a link to each of the sessions. Attendance will be taken. A reminder, these are school based related services and will be performed within the typical school hours. In order to ensure the confidentiality of our students, recording of sessions is not permitted. If you have any concerns regarding this process, questions about how to reinforce skills taught during this time of home learning, or if I can assist your family and you during this time, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you and your child!
In addition, I have tracked the hours missed during this school closure and will submit the total number of hours missed to the Special Services Office. The Director and Supervisor of Special Services and I will meet, review, and assess the hours that will be made up for each student for each related service. We will then contact you to explain the process for meeting the individual needs of students and the system for additional support time.
Thank you for your ongoing support and patience during this unprecedented time. You are an integral part of fostering your child's development during home learning! I applaud your endeavors and patience:)
Keep calm and stay well:)
Mrs. Gorton MS OT
