Occupational Therapy


The focus of OT at Pinnacle is to address students’ individual sensory and motor needs in order to improve their overall performance in the school setting and beyond. Our program focuses on sensory integration theory and praxis skill development in order to remediate critical foundational skills. In addition, the OT team collaborates with teachers to provide sensory supports and classroom modifications to help students meet the demands of the classroom environment.

Pinnacle has a state-of-the-art Occupational Therapy (OT) gymnasium space equipped with suspended equipment and interactive tools selected to support the growth and development of our diverse community of learners. In addition to individual OT services that may be part of a student’s individual program, many of our lower and middle school students participate in a Sensory Boost during various times of the school day. The Sensory Boost serves as a vital tool to help students regulate their sensory systems for optimal success and participation in classroom activities.
