As part of our holistic and interdisciplinary approach – UCP of Central Florida (UCP Charter School and UCP Outpatient Clinics) have over 100 team members/contractors that are comprised of speech language pathologists, speech therapists, physical therapists, physical therapy assistants (PTAs), occupational therapists and certified occupational therapy assistants (COTAs) who are part of the team to support students. UCP of Central Florida Charter Schools are very unique in that educationally relevant therapy is provided as part of a students’ Individual Education Plan (IEP) and also offers a medical model of therapy for students who need additional services and support. All in one location!
Educational Relevant therapy services support students to access, participate, and progress within the least restrictive educational environment as defined on their IEP. Educationally relevant interventions support learning and participation in the classroom and children in their role as a student learner. UCP Charter Schools use a variety of service delivery models including individual, group, consultation, in-classroom and out of classroom to allow students to reach their best outcomes. However, we generally believe that the ͞push -in or inclusion model is most effective for most students. By providing integrated/in-class services, our therapists work closely with teachers and classroom staff to collaboratively address students' goals. This increases team coordination and competency to provide assistance and support to students. Research shows that when therapists model and instruct on how to implement recommended techniques that support a student’s accommodations and modifications, results improve within the classroom setting. Our therapists also assist in the use/selection of functional mobility equipment (including transfer and positioning techniques), and assistive, adaptive and augmentative communication devices.
UCP of Central Florida also has a pediatric therapy clinic on each of our campuses – providing on-site medical model physical, speech or occupational therapy for our students. We also provide out-patient services to birth to 21-year-olds.
