Activities of Daily Living (ADL's)
ADLs are everyday self care school activities that a student does such as dressing and eating. The OT often teaches these skills to students identified with special needs and can consult with classroom teachers and parents to help support skill development. The child who is physically involved will most likely require a number of adaptations in order to increase his/her independence. Your school occupational therapist and speech therapist will most likely collaborate on a plan for feeding and train you in use of equipment and strategies.
