Children with autism often struggle with fine and gross motor skills.
A student’s difficulty using scissors or writing with a pencil can make school projects difficult, leading to feelings of frustration.
The inability to enter into a simple game of catch or climbing on playground equipment can make it difficult for students to interact with other kids – and to make friends.
Linden Grove School (LGS) students meet with an occupational therapist each week during the school day. In addition, therapists lead or participate in classroom activities – this enables therapists to address needs as they arise, and therapists and teachers to work collaboratively on helping students fully participate in school activities.
