Virtual: Comparing School and Medical Therapy Services for Children

ESC-20 provides resources and training opportunities for parents and famillies of students served within federal programs, including Title I, Title III, and Special Education.

Family/Community Engagement

Important Session Information:

Healthcare providers frequently tell parents what school therapy should be provided, what it should focus on, and/or how much school therapy should be provided. Then parents’ expectations are violated when the student's Admission, Review, and Dismissal Committee implements the decision-making process that may not result in similar recommendations, causing confusion and resentment. This workshop will help parents contrast the medical model of therapy services (e.g., speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, etc.) with the school model required by federal law. Participating parents will better understand how therapy decisions are made in the schools and how to participate in that process.
