  • Occupational Therapy
    Occupational therapy can lead to benefits for The Craig School students, especially for children
    with learning and attentional difficulties. Our on-campus occupational therapists, from P.G.
    Chambers School in Cedar Knolls, work with students in a private therapy setting or they push-
    in to the classroom and recommend sensory tools for the students who have difficulties focusing
    in the classroom. Occupational therapists use strategies, interventions, adaptations and
    innovative techniques to improve a student’s fine motor skills, motor coordination, visual
    perceptual skills, executive functioning skills and sensory processing skills. Therapists consult
    with teachers; observe in various classrooms, during lunchtime, recess time and in gym class in
    order to provide strategies so that the students can succeed.
