Occupational Therapy

OT -Lower SchoolAt Centreville Layton School, occupational therapy (OT) is provided to those students who are experiencing difficulty with some kind of motor coordination or sensory processing.  In-coordination might be seen during fine motor tasks such as writing, drawing or dressing activities.  Gross motor in-coordination might be noted during ball activities, clumsiness on the playground or in physical education.  Some children may be experiencing sensory processing issues that may need therapy support during the child’s school day.20120911-IMG_1854

An occupational therapy evaluation is arranged upon admission as it is helpful to get to know the student’s strengths and weaknesses. If the evaluation shows the child has some areas of weakness in gross motor, fine motor, handwriting, visual perceptual, or sensory processing areas, he or she may receive OT.  Therapy is given as part of the school program and is usually provided in small groups of three or four students in the mini-gym or as part of the therapy program in the classroom.  Written progress reports are given to the parents at midyear and end of the year.

The difference is clear

Our son learned the valuable skills of teamwork, patience and perseverance during his time at Centreville Layton as well as the academic strategies to move forward into a typical high school setting. Centreville Layton strikes a great balance of family-like warmth and discipline in a beautiful country setting.

This past year has been completely transformational for our daughter and her positive strides have been noticeable both at home and at school. She is growing into the best version of herself and her teachers at CLS have played a significant role in her progress.

This year, I’ve learned to understand that acceptance is greatly appreciated but difficult to find. Compared to where I came from, CLS houses some of the most accepting people that I’ve ever met. I am thankful for every little act of kindness shown towards me or even towards another student. They have not gone unnoticed.


We’re prepared for this because we’ve learned how to work hard, solve problems, be independent, happy, responsible and kind to all.


The support from my teachers taught me not just reading and writing, but to embrace who I am, to learn from my mistakes and grow because of them.
