AZ-TAS INFORMATION: OT/PT AZ-TAS Document Now Available!

Special Education Directors,

ESS is pleased to present the revised Arizona Technical Assistance System (AZ-TAS) document for occupational therapy and physical therapy in Arizona’s public schools. The revised OT/PT AZ-TAS resource is a best practices document and provides guidance on the implementation of the legal requirements for occupational and physical therapy as related services, reflecting current practices in the field.

Many hours of hard work by dedicated occupational therapists and physical therapists from around the state went into this document. ESS hopes that Directors and their staff find this document helpful as schools strive to provide the best possible services to the children we serve.

Please feel free to distribute to your staff. A copy is linked below, and the document can be found at the following webpages on the ADE website:
