I am Maria Dyzenhaus, one of the Occupational Therapists in the First Steps Preschool Program at the Early Learning Center. I have worked with students of all ages over the years but enjoy working with our youngest learners the most.
In the school setting, Occupational Therapists:
- Support academic achievement and social participation by promoting occupation within all school routines, including recess, classroom, and cafeteria time.
- They help children fulfill their role as students and prepare them for college, career, and community integration.
