Educational settings

Supporting teachers to ensure all children's needs are met

I provide services to various different settings across Kent and Medway including specialist schools, units and mainstream settings.

My approach is always to ensure I am able to provide a cost effective expert therapy service to education settings.

Services for schools

I've provided an overview of the services I most commonly provide to educational settings. For more information, please contact me.

Packages

I offer set clinical packages which settings can purchase and also provide ad hoc support and assessments.

As well as providing clinical packages I also offer mentorship and consultancy. Tailored packages can also be created to ensure flexibility and creativity of my input.

Assessment Package

Various levels of assessment offered including those suitable for mainstream and specialist settings. Multiple pupils seen in one day with written reports including recommendations, as well as reports which can be used towards EHCP applications.

Consultancy

I can help problem solve around provision, documentation and equipment within schools.

By using a consultancy service you can ensure that your school is offering the best level of support to pupils in the most effective way.

  • Setting up OT provision within new specialist schools who have not had OT support previously
  • Completing environmental assessments to ensure inclusion of all pupils
  • Supporting in the designing of sensory rooms
  • Support with action planning and risk assessments for pupils or environments
  • Supporting with implementing local and national intervention programmes e.g. Sensory Circuits
  • Writing and developing therapy resources for staff

Mentorship / supervision

I provide support to an individual or small groups of education staff working in specialist settings.

Sessions can be scheduled in advance for a whole academic year, ensuring your staff are equipped and feel confident in supporting complex pupils needs.

All mentorship sessions include the use of a mentorship log which summarises discussions including any advice given. The log always ends with a clear action plan for the staff member.

Training session for teachers

Training

I have a range of training options available and often create specific training to ensure it is suitable for your school or staff members needs.

Training sessions can be booked as twilight sessions or whole inset days.

Popular training sessions include:
  • Introduction to Sensory Processing Difficulties
  • Sensory Regulation Emotion and Behaviour
  • Implementing a successful Sensory Circuit

Parent workshops

Often the effect of challenges at home will impact on a child’s schooling.

This is why I offer a range of parent workshops, coffee mornings and support groups. The most popular sessions are around behaviour and sensory needs. I always end the session with some Q&As or one to one discussion with parents to help them feel supported.
