I am Maria Dyzenhaus, one of the Occupational Therapists at East Maine School District 63. I work with students from Preschool-5th grade at Melzer and Apollo schools.
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.
