The therapy provision at Baston House School is designed to support the pupils’ overall development by addressing their individual identified needs. We make effective use of the pupils’ Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) to design appropriate support and intervention programmes.
There is a strong focus on enabling all pupils to develop socially appropriate communication skills, alongside their academic, social, emotional and physical development.
There are many needs that pupils with an Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) have that can adversely affect their learning and ability to engage positively at school and at home. At Baston House School we endeavour to provide support at both the individual and environmental level to ensure that specialist tailored support is delivered to every pupil to better enable them achieve their full potential.
We have a team consisting of Clinical Psychology, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy. We work from a multi-disciplinary approach. This means applying a combination of different skills and knowledge to provide a holistic understanding of the difficulty’s pupils may present. In this way, we are able to design interventions to meet the unique needs of each pupil from a variety of perspectives.
Therapy is delivered individually with pupils to address specific needs that are highlighted by teachers and parents and specified in their EHCPs. Group sessions are also delivered by the team as well as supporting teachers to use the strategies developed within their daily teaching.
