How I work
Sessions are mostly carried out in the family home or schools. This allows collaborative work with parents and teachers, to best meet the specific needs of your child. Each student has a unique learning style and sessions are adapted accordingly.
A wide range of informal and formal (standardised) assessments are used depending on individual needs and the environment. Assessment will often be play based with younger children. Following assessment, practical advice and recommendations will be provided. Based on the outcomes of assessment, specific goals will be developed to meet the needs of the client.
Therapy sessions are one-on-one allowing tasks to be adapted to your child’s individual learning style. Fun games and effective activities are incorporated into the sessions to motivate young clients to achieve their aims successfully and to make sessions positive and enjoyable.
