In-House Occupational Therapy Service
Occupational Therapy (OT) is an integral part of Strathmore School; the OT team is directly employed by the Auriga Trust allowing us to tailor make our service to the needs of the children and young people within the school.
Within Strathmore school the OT service supports teachers in developing key aspects of a child’s skills- including the following:
- Sensory Processing
- Fine Motor Skills
- Gross Motor Skills
- Motor Planning
- Visual Perception
- Self Care
Who We Are
The OT team at Strathmore school consists of two qualified Occupational Therapists (Charlotte and Alison) and two higher level teaching assistants (Jackie and Helen) who have been directly trained by the Occupational Therapists.
The OT’s have over 13 years’ experience between them within peadiatrics, and have a variety of skills covering both Neuro-Developmental Therapy and Sensory Integration Therapy.
Model Of Practice
The OT service uses a combination of Integrated and Direct therapy. We are at every site across the working week. Each child has several OT programmes that are integrated into their daily curriculum by allocated class staff. Progress is reviewed termly as well as linked with the annual review process. Where needed, the child will access direct sessions with the occupational therapist from anything as frequently as twice a week.
