‘Children are not blank slates for which the past can be rubbed out, but human beings who carry their previous experiences with them and whose behaviour in the present has been profoundly affected by what has gone before.’ John Bowlby, 1951
At Headstart School we operate in multi-disciplinary teams with teaching and therapy staff working alongside each other, providing parents and carers with open communication and support strategies to use at home.
Our therapy team includes the following:
- Occupational Therapy (OT) aims to help our learners achieve as much independence as possible within their activities of daily living
- Speech and Language Therapy (SaLT) aims to support learners to work towards their communication potential, be better understood by those around them, and allow learners to begin to discover and enjoy the benefits of communicating their wants and needs
