Manchester Occupational Therapy Services offer a service where we can come into school and assess students who are having difficulty with their learning. We typically come in to schools and assess visual motor skills, handwriting, pen grip and posture. Following this assessment a report is produced with recommendations to optimise the students learning experience. Training for staff and parents can also be provided. The Pupil Premium can be used to fund this occupational therapy input. We can also contribute to setting up skill specific group programmes as well as individual programmes for school and home.
This is a model that has worked well within schools and has seen positive outcomes.
