Physical and Occupational Therapy

School based occupational and physical therapists collaborate with parents and educational staff to help implement each student’s Individualized Educational Program (IEP). When necessary, therapists may also partner with other staff members to modify the child’s routine or environment to foster more independence within the educational environment.  


Physical Therapy at Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD) aims to assist students with improvements in areas such as coordination, balance, strength and flexibility.


Occupational Therapy at Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD) provides students with assistance in areas such as fine motor coordination and sensory-motor processing.


These services allow students to fully participate in their educational programs. Additionally, physical therapy and occupational therapy staff members are English/American Sign Language bilinguals.
