Students with Asperger's, autism, dyslexia and related learning difficulties benefit from our holistic approach to helping them deal with the anxieties of everyday life. With a dedicated speech and language room and separate therapy room, our specialist staff are key members of the team, there to support students on a daily basis.
At LVS Oxford, occupational therapy is provided to support the needs of the student which is identified from observations, standardised and non-standardised assessments in the school. Sensory, motor and functional skills are assessed, and all students are provided with an action plan and sensory diet which is incorporated into the classroom environment. Occupational therapy can be provided in both individual sessions and group work activities, with equipment and strategies integrated into the classroom supporting the needs of the student, enabling them to access the curriculum.
Education and residential staff receive training to understand how to support particular difficulties that may be impacting engagement, levels of anxiety and behaviour. The Occupational Therapist will regularly liaise with all staff to ensure there is a consistent approach across the waking day curriculum.
