Schools and local authorities
Children’s Therapy Solutions provides occupational therapy services for Local Educational Authorities and in independent, residential, EOTAS, and special schools for children and young people with neurodevelopmental, autism, sensory, emotional, social difficulties and Trauma.
Our OT consultancy service includes direct work with children and young people as well as providing training to staff and families.
Education is a formative yet complex process – it shapes who we are and how we develop, it influences our future career choices and contributes to our morals, values and beliefs.
For children and young people with special needs, access to the whole educational experience may be compromised. They therefore need support, guidance and understanding to realise their potential.
Why choose us?
We bring experience, expertise and flexibility.
We already work with 90% of LEAs in the central part of the UK and are currently commissioned by mainstream, special, independent schools in six counties.
We have extensive experience of service delivery in educational settings and provide schools with specialist services for those children who require bespoke support to access learning in occupational therapy, sensory integration, environmental alterations and equipment assessment and recommendations. We also have the capability to refer onto other specialist services if required.
We can be commissioned on a regular weekly, monthly and termly basis individually through contracted number of hours as determined by the level of need.
Schools play an essential role in shaping children’s lives. We know that teachers and staff work incredibly hard to help children and young people feel supported and safe as they progress through the education system. At times, additional training and support may be required to help children and young people with particular difficulties. Our highly qualified team of clinical Occupational Therapist and Occupational Therapy assistants provide a range of services to schools, including consultations and training.
