Physical and Occupational Therapists provide services to eligible students, age birth to 21. As a related service, we support students, families and school personnel in the learning environment to enhance learning and participation while fostering independence.
The Nebraska Department of Education Regulations and Standards define related services as transportation and such developmental, corrective and other supportive services that are required to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education. Service provision in the educational setting may be through direct treatment but is most effective within the classroom or home in collaboration with parents and teachers.
To make a referral for a school-aged child, please contact your local school and speak with their special education professional. For children not yet of school age, please contact us at (402) 287- 2061.
