examination, evaluation, promotion of health and wellness, and implementation
of a wide variety of interventions and supports.

their families and other medical, educational, developmental, and rehabilitation
- Promote the participation of children in daily activities and routines
in the home, school, and community.
- Educate and support to help with key transitions from early childhood
to school and into adult life. They also work to support the needs of the
