Hello! I am not understanding the question below as the answer is #3 (the OT is unable to treat the student until a referral comes from the physician). When and how is a physician involved in the school system (in regards to the IEP process)? How come the OT cannot refer the student to the physical therapist? Is this even a concern that and OT would address in the school system? Here is the question:
A concerned crossing guard asks the school OT to evaluate a 6 year old student who has trouble getting in and out of his mom’s car in the morning. How should the OT proceed with this new information?
1. The OT can refer the studen to the physical therapist.
2. The OT can evaluate the student for gross motor delays.
3. The OT is unable to treat the student until a referral comes from the physician.
The OT can provide the mother with a developmental checklist.
