Dawn Whitney-Flaherty, OTR/L, Director of Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Assistive Technology Services
Dawn has provided occupational therapy for students attending South Shore Educational Collaborative Programs and member school districts since 1990. In 1998, she completed intensive training in assistive technology through a Massachusetts Technology Literacy Challenge Grant which led to forming a multidisciplinary assistive technology team and establishing the South Shore Educational Collaborative Assistive Technology Center.



Therapists are members of the special educational team. They collaborate with the educational team to determine the best way to meet student learning needs. Therapists provide evaluation and therapeutic intervention for students with disabilities aged three to twenty two in the Collaborative programs and member school districts. Therapists also provide consult services to adults in the Community Adult Program.
