We offer independent Paediatric Occupational Therapy services to schools in and around the London area. As the lead therapist, I have over 17 years of exclusive paediatric OT experience and offer these services under the trading name of OTLondon. I am HCPC registered, a member of BAOT, COT and the Sensory Integration Network. You can read more about OTLondon by following the link to our website. http://www.otlondon.com
We provide a comprehensive list of services for schools. These include consultancy services that can work with individuals or groups, discussion and advice (with staff, SENCOs, LSAs or TAs), meeting attendance, annual reviews, observation and group therapy.
Whatever the situation at the school, whether needing a screening for an individual child, group therapy or setting up and monitoring school programs we provide an in-depth and comprehensive tailored confidential service.
Individual screening and full assessments are available. We can build programs or provide therapy sessions according to the child’s needs. We can liaise with the parents, teachers and TA’s to co-ordinate efforts to ensure effective intervention and sharing of information.
Small group therapy, both short and long term, specifically tailored for children who display similar difficulties. These are aimed to develop fine motor and handwriting skills, core stability, gross motor skills and visual perception. Underlying sensory difficulties are also addressed whilst providing schools with recommendations for environmental adaptations and appropriate strategies to incorporate throughout the school day.
We can attend a child’s annual review to discuss his OT goals and how to incorporate them within their Individual Educational Plan. If they receive therapy we can provide feedback about their progress.
Staff training is available to empower teachers and LSAs with the knowledge to understand the issues facing the child and strategies of helping the child reduce barriers to learning.
Our experience at schools in both the public and private sector enables us to deliver excellent quality of service in a professional partnership environment built to provide maximum effect with the minimum of disruption.
I would like to have an opportunity to discuss your school’s OT needs in greater detail and would be happy to visit your school. To discuss with us services for your school, follow Contact from the menu above.
