Therapies at Spa School
- Speech and Language Therapy
We have speech and language therapists (S.A.L.T.) 4 days a week.
The speech and language therapists assess all the students in the school for their communication needs. Individual targets are set in consultation with the class teachers and reviewed regularly. The therapists work with students on a 1:1 basis or in small groups accordingly. Suitable communication resources are identified such as use of an iPad with a communication programme or picture exchange communication systems (PECS) and the class teams work with the students to develop their communication throughout the day.
- Occupational Therapy
We have an occupational therapist (OT) 2 days a week. The therapist works 1:1 to support students individually after assessing their physical or sensory needs.
- Art Therapy
We have an art therapist 1 day a week. Students are referred to the art therapist by the teachers on an individual basis.
- Music Therapy

- Dance Therapy
