Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

AIM Academy Occupational Therapists (OTs) have specific knowledge and expertise to help children perform school-related activities and daily routines to fulfill their roles as students. AIM's OTs use a holistic approach when assessing student's performance across a broad range of skills through participation in individually designed activities and supported work on classroom assignments. They also assist our students with many tasks, including executive functioning skills, written work, number sense, visual spatial skills, and use of assistive technology. AIM's Occupational Therapy Department was recently one of three organizations in the area selected to partner with nationally-ranked Thomas Jefferson University's Occupational Therapy Department as a Promoting Environments that Measure Outcomes (PrEMO©) site.
