Our Specialist Occupational Therapists provide tailor made services to schools across Sussex. We pride ourselves in creating a package that suits the needs of your school and your pupils, and our OT Team Lead will happily talk you through all possible options. Occupational Therapy can offer vital assistance and effective intervention for children who struggle with sensory motor skills, fine motor co-ordination and/or handwriting skills. We regularly work with children who have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition, ADHD, Developmental Coordination Disorder, physical disability and developmental trauma.
Services frequently offered to local schools include:
We regularly see children who, due to emotional and behavioural problems, have difficulty modulating their attention and regulating their emotional state. Following an initial assessment, we provide a report to the parents and the school which includes a clear and pragmatic summary of the findings, together with creative strategies which can bridge support from both home and school. Interventions can be in the form of group work or individual work for a series of sessions. We are able to provide ongoing therapy for children who’s EHC plan specifies and quantifies regular therapy provision.
Many schools use their pupil premium budgets to fund our interventions, and all adopted children are able to access our services through the Adoption Support Fund.
