Therapy sessions tend to be 30 or 45 minutes long and are delivered on a regular, weekly basis. 60 minute sessions are available on request.
Depending on your child's age, the assessment will either be based on informal observation and play or formal, standardised assessment material. A detailed case history will also be obtained so if you have any reports/letters that you feel may be useful, please do bring these with you.
I very much welcome the attendance of parents or carers in the therapy sessions. It can be a good opportunity for them to learn ways to support the child's development. All that I ask is that parents are mindful of not having too many adults present as this can be distracting for the child.
Further reinforcement of skills that your child may be practicing is very important. I am very happy to provide you with things to work on between sessions and suggest activities that your child can carry out in the home and school environments to aid your child's development.
Should your child benefit from further assessment from other professionals, for example an Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist or Educational Psychologist. This will be discussed directly with the child's parents and advice can be provided on how best to obtain this support.
An EHC plan is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through special educational needs support. I am able to support your application with legal reports.
