Therapy Program

DSC04079Children are engaged in, and grouped into, a first of its kind progressive program based on the child’s innate motivation. This motivational frame of reference is used in Occupational Therapy and is named Creative Ability. The curriculum in use (Day by Day Early Childhood Development Curriculum) is specifically adapted according to the motivational level of each class, and trained teachers then futher adapt the activities specific to each child’s individual needs. Thus classtime is therapeutic time.

Initially when children are enrolled, they are assessed over a period of time to allow them to settle into the program, and then individual goals are drawn up together with input from the family.

Group therapies are provided on Tuesdays and Thursdays and these include the following:

  • Occupational Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Canine Assited Therapy
  • AAC
  • Hydrotherapy (for children with physical disabilities)

In addition we have volunteers who provide gross motor stimulation classes and specialised Zumbatomics (Latin inspired rhythmic dance).

Individual therapies are available during the school day should these be necessary. These include:

  • Occupational Therapy (Sensory Integration Therapy)
  • Physiotherapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • AAC

Children are therefore presented with a therapeutically adapted curriculum within a multidisciplinary setting, focusing on their individual needs. Small classes (5 or 6 children per class) ensure individual attention on a daily basis.
