How is therapy at FAC different than school therapy or district services?
For school aged children, school therapy is based on the educational model and addresses how a child functions within their educational environment. Often time, school and district services are less often than outpatient therapy. For both school aged and younger children, it may be more difficult to qualify for school/district therapy than outpatient therapy. Outpatient therapy at places such as Family Achievement Center, are based on a medical model and focus on treating the child’s needs in every aspect of their life. Outpatient and school/district services can be working on similar or different goals depending on your child’s needs and a child may benefit from both!
