Slots for children to receive O/T and P/T (Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy) for this coming school year, will be distributed via a lottery, a Board Of Education member confirmed to TLS. In the past years, the slots were distributed by a first-come-first-serve basis, but that system caused some issues and drew many complaints.
The BOE member says that in the years parents would complain that they were unable to get through to the BOE and were therefore not rewarded a slot.
The children receiving O/T and P/T are serviced at the Princeton Avenue School. TLS-CCP.
