Our school has an O/T too, and we're in Virginia. Here's the disconnect for us. The services provided are "educationally necessary" or words to that effect. Meaning if your child struggles with handwriting, or cutting with scissors, they qualify for services. Sensory processing, no.

Now I will say our current school O/T is great, and does try to integrate strategies to help kids with sensory issues. However, she only works part time, and every kid I've met (I sub, and am often called into SPED classrooms) gets 30 minutes once a week, max.

So we had our dd in private practice O/T for a little over 3 yrs, where they worked much more extensively on sensory issues.
