Here at Progress 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 of:
- A behaviour analyst
- Two speech and language therapists
- Two sensory integration-trained occupational therapists
A multidisciplinary approach to managing challenging behaviour
Our MDT has a real input into helping young people at Progress School to manage their behaviour. Whether an individual is demonstrating outwardly aggressive challenging behaviours or self-injurious behaviours, we develop proactive strategies to support them and their personal needs. Our speech and language therapists and occupational therapists offer training and support to parents/carers if they are interested in learning more about their child’s communication or sensory needs.
We offer therapeutic services from external partners including sensory drama, music and horse riding.
