Occupational Therapy Week 2019, 4-10 November, Henry

For many of our students sensory processing difficulties present barriers to participation in activities, through sensory profiling, sensory assessment and by embedding sensory strategies and sensory diets into the curriculum students are able to lead more meaningful lives.

Occupational therapy provision includes:

Providing advice and support in adapting activities for a variety of skill level e.g. using cooking as a way to explore the senses improve hand function or develop independence skills.

Providing advice and support regarding environmental adaptations to enable students to function effectively e.g. providing a low arousal setting within a classroom to assist the individual in concentrating.

Working holistically within the multi-disciplinary team to ensure students are supported in all areas to achieve maximum levels of participation and engagement.
