Occupational TherapyThe SC School for the Deaf and the Blind’s certified and licensed occupational therapists work on students’ fine motor skills and sensory processing.Examples of skills learned in occupational therapy include the ability to:
- Feed oneself
- Change clothes
- Manage daily grooming activities
- Improve independent living skills
- Improve pre-vocational skills
- Develop sensory tolerance
- Develop coordination for various tasks
Parents and families of SCSDB students do not receive bills for occupational therapy treatments at the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind. The school receives reimbursements for medical services through the SC Department of Health and Human Services “Partners for Healthy Children” program for Medicaid-eligible students.
Parents may have to pay for a student’s personal equipment, but the occupational therapy staff works with families to identify private insurance or Medicaid funding when possible.
