Occupational therapy at Blossomland Learning Center utilizes a variety of frames of reference including, but not limited to: Sensory Integration (Occupational therapist is Sensory Integration certified), Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Neuro-Developmental Techniques (NDT), and positioning to improve function.

For the physically impaired students, BLC offers a Range of Motion and a positioning program which are supervised by the occupational therapist and carried-out by the therapy paraprofessional and classroom teachers.  Additionally, a Multisensory room is available for students to work on cause/effect concepts, play, and visual motor and fine motor skills.
