Mrs. Sheila Barnett Occupational Therapist

Hello, I am the Occupational Therapist at Walter Hill School. I have the privilege of working in special education at Rutherford County Schools. I am considered a related service provider which means OT is a supportive service to assist a child with a disability to benefit from special education. Occupational therapy addresses the physical, cognitive and sensory components of performance in schools.Emphasis in OT  is on academics , social participation, motor performance, sensory/self regulation, self care and work skills. OT assesses needs for adaptive strategies and assists in modifying academic work to help a student achieve at their highest level.  I am at Walter Hill on Mondays for the entire day seeing all of my children on my caseload. The rest of the week, I am out at other schools evaluating, attending meetings or supervising OT assistants. Please feel free to email me or call Walter Hill School if you have questions.
