 Related Services and Therapy

​​Physical and Occupational Therapy are considered related services under the IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). They are therefore support services for students with disabilities who are enrolled ineligible for special education or have a 504 plan in place.

School-based therapies are designed to provide students educational benefit from the special education program. Therapy is indicated only when the student cannot meet special education objectives, or when needed to access to the general curriculum or physical school environment.​
