ErinoakKids works collaboratively with our school board partners who can make a referral for School Based Rehabilitation Services (SBRS) that include Occupational Therapy (OT), Physiotherapy (PT) and some Speech Language Pathology (SLP) in publicly funded schools. The goal of SBRS is to support student participation in school curriculum.
Each school will be assigned one team of therapists that may include an Occupational Therapist (OT), Occupational & Physiotherapy Assistant (OTA/ PTA), Physiotherapist (PT), Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) and Speech & Language Therapy Assistant (SLTA).
OT/PT services include consultation for safety, mobility, access and participation in school activities. Students with complex physical needs will have one therapy team for home, school and community. Home and in Centre needs for students with physical needs will now be addressed by the same OT/PT the student sees at school.
SLP services include support for some speech difficulties. This includes articulation/phonology disorders, voice disorders and dysfluency.
