The Occupational Therapy department at the Sierra School of San Diego has attained the National Foundation for Autism Research (NFAR) grant, aimed at supporting educators and therapists working with individuals with Autism. This grant will fund an upgrade for the therapy mats in the Motor Lab, ensuring safety of students during direct OT treatment sessions and student’s sensory regulation breaks. During these sessions students utilize the therapy mats to practice motor skills and engage in sensory activities, laying the foundation for successful participation in daily activities in the classroom environment. The replacement of these mats with durable equipment will promote the safety and success of Sierra School students for years to come.
