Warm, professional support and care
Therapeutic input, delivered by a team of specialists, is available either on a one to one basis, or is integrated into the curriculum and classroom life through liaison between therapists and teaching staff, in line with individual needs.
Therapists also contribute to social and IEP target setting for students through individual programmes, liaison with staff, direct intervention and social skills groups.
Therapists work closely with education and care staff, as well as the students and their families, and all relevant professionals are involved in the development, implementation and evaluation of individualised plans for the students in our care – meaning we can put into place exactly the right strategies and support to benefit the student as their needs change.
Once Z is in school he doesn’t have any anxiety as he has his quiet room to go to, the staff don’t make him feel anxious and he trusts them.
Our team of professionals includes:
- Pastoral Manager
- Speech and Language Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
- Music Therapists
- Drama Therapists
- Educational Psychologists
Staff are always ready to help students be calm, and to concentrate on learning.
Students are given clear boundaries and expectations and these are reinforced using praise and consistency.
Students have their own Individual Behaviour Plans, which are designed and reviewed by our multi-disciplinary team, working alongside parents. These help each student to learn about their behaviour and find the most positive and appropriate ways to communicate.
