The therapy provision at Hillingdon Manor School is designed to support the students’ overall development by addressing their individual identified needs. We make effective use of the students’ Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) to design appropriate support and intervention programmes which has a positive impact on their outcomes.
There is a strong focus on enabling all students to develop socially appropriate communication skills, alongside their academic, social, emotional and physical development.
There are many needs that students with an Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) have that can adversely affect their learning and ability to engage positively at school and at home. At Hillingdon Manor School we endeavour to provide support at both the individual and environmental level to ensure that specialist tailored support is delivered to every student to better enable them achieve their full potential.
We have a multidisciplinary team consisting of Clinical Psychology, Counselling, Play Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy. We work from a multi-disciplinary team approach. This consists of a combination of different skills and knowledge set to provide a holistic understanding of the difficulties students may present. This allows us to design interventions to meet the unique needs of each student from a variety of perspectives.
Therapy is delivered individually with students 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 embed the strategies into their daily teaching.
