Speech and Language Therapy
We have two Speech and Language Therapists (SALT) that are based at the school three days a week. Therapists work alongside teachers and class teams to support pupils develop effective communication strategies. They will support pupils to develop their use of communication systems such as PECs, iPads and AAC devices as well as Makaton and expressive communication strategies. Therapists set individual targets based on EHC Outcomes and will work with teachers to develop strategies to support pupils achieve those outcomes. Targets are reviewed and updated on a termly basis.
We have two Occupational Therapists (OT) who work at the school one day a week. The therapists support class teams to develop sensory diets for those who need them and to work on EHC Physical and Sensory EHC targets. The OT will set targets and implement strategies which are then reviewed each term.
Dance and Movement Therapy
We have one Dance and Movement therapist who works at the school one day a week. The therapist works with individuals and groups of pupils to explore emotions through the medium of dance. Short termly reports are written to document engagement and progress within the sessions.
