Our professional skills and expertise allow us to liaise with teachers and SEN Departments in the school to identify the needs of children and to match the appropriate equipment.
We provide support and training for the personnel who will be using the equipment. Our intervention can mean the difference between calm and focused learners and dis-regulated learners. Even the simplest pieces of equipment, when correctly used, can make immense differences in supporting children to meet their potential.
Identifying the needs of children with SEND
When children present with barriers to learning in the school, it’s important for teachers and support staff to fully understand those needs. Our therapists have years of experience in interpreting therapy reports and assessments, while identifying how each child’s needs will be impacted in the school setting. Early intervention is fundamental in meeting requirements of children with needs, whether minimal or extensive.
Matching equipment to children’s specific needs, creating the right space in the school.
