Supporting a child to be an active and independent learner is important for a child’s success and enjoyment at school.

Our therapists assist children to get the most from their learning opportunities by working on skills such as:

  • Fine motor skills (cutting, writing, drawing)
  • Communication
  • Getting along with others
  • Sitting and moving in the class setting
  • Participation in school settings including extracurricular activities
  • Managing their behaviour
  • Using assistive technology to support learning

Best-practice therapy principles show that the most positive and meaningful outcomes occur when children and young people are treated in their natural environment and everyday context. School is an important environment where therapy can offer support for both the child and the teaching staff to help achieve their individual goals. In the school environment, our focus is on helping the child to enjoy educational opportunities, develop friendships and be an active participant in the school and wider community.
