Each child has a Tutor, a nominated Speech & Language Therapist, and residential students have a Key Worker. The professional team working with a child can also include Special Teaching Assistants, Occupational Therapists and Care staff. The school Health Care manager works on site. In addition we have close relationships with specialist visiting professionals.
Some students have individual sessions with our specialist literacy tutors who are dyslexia trained.
Psychotherapy is also available for some students and the service is provided by our visiting professional Stuart Lane. Stuart is an Integrative Psychotherapist who has a great deal of experience working with young people with language and communication difficulties. He is Director of the Diplomas in Child Psychotherapeutic Counselling and in Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education, London.
