During the Transition phase we support the generalization of skills from the home to school environments. Therapy sessions are conducted in both of these environments.
In school, the therapist acts as a classroom aide to enable the child to:
In-home therapy focuses on pre-teaching any academic skills that are being taught in the classroom and helping the child with any skills that he/she is having difficulty with in school. Therapy begins to resemble tutoring at this stage. Depending on the child’s needs, full or part-time support may be needed in school.
The ultimate goal is to transition the child into the classroom with minimal to no support from the therapist. During his phase 10-20 hours a week of therapy is recommended (this includes therapy in school).
