Occupational therapy services provided by Heartland AEA occupational therapists assist students from birth to 21 years of age to develop, improve and/or maintain functional independence in the least restrictive educational setting.

Occupational therapy services may include:
- Identification, assessment and intervention
- Adaptation of the educational environment
- Prevention or minimization of the impact of initial or future impairment, delay in development or loss of functional ability
