Partnering for Change in Practice

In the Partnering for Change (P4C) model of service delivery, a rehabilitation professional has regular, dedicated time to support the whole school community. In the P4C research project, an occupational therapist (OT) delivered services one day per week at each participating school for two school years.

  • P4C services are delivered in a timely way where the children are — in schools.
  • OT services are multifaceted and focused on the whole school, educator, and child.
  • P4C OTs collaborate closely with educators to facilitate participation of children with special needs.
  • Parents and educators can contact the P4C OT directly at the school to request services.
