What does ICT look like?

What might 'individualised' therapy look like?

Individualised therapy is based on the student’s needs, and may involve the following:

  • 1:1 support during lesson time, when it is determined a student needs therapy support to participate
  • Small group activities to target specific goals areas, if students have similar therapy goals
  • 1:1 consultation with teaching staff to provide suggestions and strategies to support the student in the classroom
  • Social skills support in the playground
  • Occupational Therapy support with fine or gross motor skills during sport/PE
  • Occupational Therapy support with self-care/dressing skills before or after swimming
  • Speech Pathology or Occupational Therapy support at mealtimes
  • Support at transition times
  • Therapists running or supporting whole group activities
