Our mission is to provide innovative, student-centered, OT/PT services through collaborative support of a student’s opportunities for independence and success in all aspects of the educational environment.
We are a dedicated staff who are committed to the needs of the students and staff in the WAWM SD. Currently we have 3 full time physical therapists, 4 full time occupational therapists, and 2 full time certified occupational therapy assistants (COTA). Together we service all of the schools in the West Allis – West Milwaukee School District. This year the therapists have students at 16 out of 17 schools. Our caseloads and the schools we service do tend to change from year to year.
