There are many children in special schools who have occupational therapy on their statement or who would benefit from occupational therapy input, however this input tends to be limited from statutory services. Many of these children and their teaching staff would benefit from professional input and advice regarding fine motor skills, visual motor skills, visual perceptual skills, coordination and sensory integration/processing skills, functional skills and life skills development as well as support with access, seating and equipment.
- Work with teachers regarding planning of daily activities to benefit individual children or the whole class.
- Provide individual assessments and therapeutic intervention as required.
- Support the teacher and child in achieving IEP and therapeutic goals through collaborative working, individualised therapy and/or small group work.
- Work with families and other professionals to provide consistency across settings.
We offer a flexible service and are able to work with all children and their teaching staff in ways that work best for the teacher, school and child.
