Occupational Therapy Within Schools
EVERY CHILD DESERVES THE SUPPORT THEY NEED NO MATTER WHAT ISSUES OR CHALLENGES THEY FACE. WE USE A CHILD-FOCUSED APPROACH TO ASSIST CHILDREN ON EVERY POINT OF THE EDUCATIONAL SPECTRUM.
We at Kate Meads Associates work in both mainstream and specialist schools. We work with those who do not necessarily have a formal diagnosis but are experiencing difficulty in school, as well as children with formal diagnoses such as autistic spectrum disorders, global developmental delay and dyspraxia.
We don’t just focus on the difficulty – we look at the child as a whole using our specialist experience in Occupational Therapy to develop a tailored plan specific to that child’s needs.
Our specialist areas include:
We work and communicate closely with teachers, family and carers to provide treatments, guidance and training to ensure a child-centred approach thus enabling the child to engage fully in the learning process.
We develop and implement personalised programmes to optimise an child’s functional capacity in all areas including motor function, oral and hand function, sensory regulation and visual and perceptual abilities.
Equipment & Environment
We create a dynamic therapeutic environment by identifying equipment to aid child’s learning and establishing daily routines to transform their educational experience.
