How We Help You
As a parent of children with special needs, I know first hand how daunting navigating support can be. Parents recommend us because not only do we have excellent relationships with schools, but we are able to provide relevant information regarding occupational therapy as well as EHC Plans for their children. We can guide you through the process from assessment to intervention, or simply by giving you information regarding programmes and interventions to consider.
We work with mainstream, special education, specialist, maintained, non-maintained, as well as private schools. We work with schools that have Specialist Resource Provisions, and our strength is in the high level of training, information and support we provide to all levels of teaching staff, as well as parents. We have a rigorous training process, and ensure teaching staff feel completely comfortable delivering OT-based programmes.
Intervention may be in the form of: Direct individual treatment sessions, group treatment sessions, a target-based activity programme, and review or monitoring of the child’s progress.
Our groups ensure that we cater for each child’s individual needs. Because groups target children of similar ages with similar difficulties, children often feel safe in these groups.

How We Work
Once we’ve agreed a day and time, we will ask you to complete some online questionnaires, which feed directly into any report we write, using a reporting system developed by Aniesa and her clever husband Zayn. Similar forms are sent to your child’s teacher.
When you come for an assessment, we carry out a range of standardised and non-standardised assessments, involving everyday tasks, as well as some quirky (yet scientific) activities too. You will receive a comprehensive report within 2 weeks (3 weeks for tribunal reports), which we can work together to finalise. Therapy sessions can ususally being in 2-3 weeks.

been brilliant. I would highly recommend Aniesa and her team.”
