Kristina Quire


School-based occupational therapy (O.T.) is a supportive service to help students benefit from special education services.  School-based occupational therapy is considered a related service to special education by federal law, therefore is not a single service available to students.  

In order to receive school-based occupational therapy, students must have a current individual education plan (IEP) and show a need for additional support to meet the goals set on the plan.  

School-based occupational therapists support students, in all stages of education from birth to age 21, in many different educational settings.

My name is Kristina Quire and I am the Occupational Therapist at Bancroft. This is my second year at Bancroft and I'm excited to be back. I recieved my BA from the University of Minnesota. I spent nearly 10 years working with ASD students in St. Paul before returning to the University of Minnesota to earn my Masters in Occupational Therapy. 

I live in South Minneapolis and am the parent to an incomming kindergartener. Feel free to say hi if you see us on the playground!

I am at Bancroft in room 109 Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The best way to reach me is by email.
