Occupational therapy by definition is a health profession whose role is to help individuals achieve independence in their lives despite disabilities. Here at Allegro School, the Occupational Therapy department strives to give specialized assistance to our students and to teach them how to become as productive and functionally independent as possible. This is accomplished by addressing all areas of development including sensory processing, postural control, gross and fine motor skills, self help abilities, etc.
Allegro School is an AVB (Applied Verbal Behavior) program. Speech therapy is provided on an individual basis as well as daily programming with the classroom. The Speech/Language Therapy department provides comprehensive communication training to students using a variety of modalities; including but not limited to verbal language, ASL (American Sign Language), PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) and various AAC (Augmentative Alternative Communication). Pragmatic language is developed through peer and group interactions. Language therapy is utilized to increase student’s syntax in academic and social situations. Therapists provide training to classroom staff and families to increase generalization of communication skill development.
