Region 4 offers training sessions during the school year to assist district staff in providing various related services to students with disabilities. Related services are those supportive services required to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education. Topics of interest to occupational/physical therapists, transporters of students with disabilities, aides, nurses, administrators, and special educators responsible for decision making, program planning, and implementation of related services are addressed through a variety of products and services.
Therapists work collaboratively with teachers and other school professionals to assist students in benefiting from special education. Region 4 offers Continuing Education contact hours for occupational therapists and Continuing Competence Units for physical therapists for maintenance of state licensure. Topics cover current issues in school-based therapy provisions, including Assistive Technology.
The Region 4 Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy Services Special Education Leadership Network reviews current national, state, regional, and local information on assessment and service delivery options in the area of Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Members discuss recent updates, examine trends and issues, and network with other professionals. Related services’ administrators or lead therapists from each district, who have been designated by their superintendents, may be members. Information is shared with local education agencies (LEAs) by the members for implementation in the schools.
