Breckenbrough employs a permanent occupational therapist based on site for students to access. Occupational Therapy support students to develop their skills in movement, concentration, social interaction, self-awareness and confidence through Sensory Integration and movement based activities.
The individual students are assessed and offered a bespoke programme, based on their specific targets outlined in the child’s Education, Health and Care Plan. Students may be supported through individual sessions with the occupational therapist, as well as through strategies shared with and deployed by teaching staff in the classroom. In addition, students with sensory processing difficulties are offered regulation programmes which are integrated into the student’s day and monitored regularly.
