School-based therapy can cover a wide range of services from psychologists, school nurses, speech-language pathologists, special education teachers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, sign language interpreters, and more. The goal of the school district is to create a comprehensive team of professionals who can come together to create the best learning environment for students with developmental disabilities. For example, special education teachers can help teach students who are unable to attend mainstream classes with their peers. Speech-language pathologists can help these students learn the communication skills they need to make themselves heard. Occupational and physical therapists can help them with any physical challenges they need to overcome.
