Integrating Related Services into Community-Based Instruction

This video demonstrates a collaborative approach to providing occupational (OT) and physical therapy (PT) within the natural context of the school day. Students with multiple disabilities from a suburban high school participate in a weekly fieldtrip to a community natatorium. Therapists worked collaboratively with the intervention specialists to address a variety of IEP goals within this natural setting such as the development of healthy leisure interests, positive social participation, mobility, activities of daily living (ADLs) (dressing, showering), instrumental ADLs (ordering lunch, managing money).
