STAR Program Services
Cape Cod Collaborative S.T.A.R. Program offers direct and consultive services from Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapists according to a student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP). The S.T.A.R. Program offers embedded consultation from a social worker and BCBA. Integral to the S.T.A.R. Program is the concept of integrated therapies; therapists work with all staff to embed the therapy goals into a student’s daily activities and lessons to maximize effectiveness/potential.
S.T.A.R. therapists collaborate with all staff to support a school-wide emotional / sensory / behavioral regulation program. Therapists participate in daily/weekly child-study meetings to provide ongoing consultation to staff. Therapists participate in weekly school-wide staff meetings to provide ongoing input and support to the school community.
S.T.A.R. Occupational and Speech therapists, together with the program nurses and select teachers, coordinate a “feeding team” that is experienced in developing student goals for school feeding programs.
