Here at Oliver House School, we are committed to supporting young people to express or talk about their issues through offering a range of therapeutic environments and services in both the school and our associated children’s homes.
Our in-house multidisciplinary team (MDT)
We have an in-house MDT which delivers services that are tailored to young people’s needs and are available as and when they are required. The MDT comprises:
- A behaviour analyst
- A CAMHS nurse
- Two speech and language therapists
- Two sensory-trained occupational therapists
A multidisciplinary approach to managing challenging behaviour
Our MDT has a real input into helping young people at Oliver House School manage their behaviour. Whether an individual is demonstrating outwardly aggressive, challenging behaviours or anxiety-driven behaviours, we will proactively work on all strategies to support them and their personal needs. Our speech and language therapists also offer training to parents/carers if they are interested in learning more about their child’s communication.
We also offer therapeutic services from external partners. For example, we previously held a six-week musical group session, offering activities such as African drumming to encourage young people to come together under a shared interest.
