SEND Tribunal Experts for Occupational Therapy

mod7We can work with you on Special Educational Needs cases by assessing the child or young person and attending the Tribunal as a witness to support and gain the necessary outcome to successfully access learning.

We abide by the British Association of Occupational Therapists’ Guidelines to support the process in providing:

  • Detailed areas of the child’s educational needs from an Occupational Therapy perspective
  • Details of the provision required such as the approach and frequency of Occupational Therapy intervention needs to be specified and justified.
  • A succinct report to identify and explain the OT needs of the child in relation to learning, education and the school setting.
  • A description and justification of the Occupational Therapy intervention required to meet these needs, avoiding all ambiguity, questionable reasoning or personal preference so that the content is universally understood
  • Assurances of our professional obligation to the child or young person when making specific recommendations relating to their needs within his or her whole educational environment.

“Thank you for providing an excellent, comprehensive report showing a real understanding of J’s needs and for outlining in very specific terms the support that is needed in school. Your report will be extremely helpful through J’s Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment and will go some way to ensure J is appropriately supported at school. It was a pleasure to work with you; you kept me updated throughout the process and were quick to respond to my queries.”

COVID-19 Update

During these uncertain times, we are keen to keep you up-to-date with our service provision, which as you can appreciate is changing daily.

For reassurance CTS have set up a ‘Best Practice’ policy to ensure all our Occupational Therapists and Office Staff are working to the highest standard at all times; where ever we are based in the UK.

We are currently NOT seeing families at our designated CTS Clinics conforming to the recent request 23rd March 2020 @ 2030hrs from our government and NHS.

CTS are wanting to reassure you that we are highly committed to you and your child’s OT needs are cared for. We appreciate a lot of our families and service users are vulnerable and many have EHCP’s in place. As a service this requires us to ensure we continue to safeguard and meet the welfare needs of our service users effectively.

We are now providing alternative therapy to continue to support children, families and in some cases parents. We are using your appointment times and making contact via phone calls, conference calls, emails, Zoom and or Skype to support Telehealth Interventions.

Letters are being sent out to all our service users to reassure our commitment.

Please be reassured that all staff are taking every precaution to support our country in preventing the spread of this virus.

Please continue to check this site and our Facebook page for the latest updates. Alternatively call us on: 01664 567917.
