Therapy

At the Link Primary School we employ our own Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists and buy in other therapies as required, e.g. Music Therapy and Drama Therapy.

We have six Speech and Language Therapists who work for two days a week each. We have three Occupational therapists who give six full days of support between them across a week. An Occupational Therapy assistant is also employed permanently to ensure all the programmes are completed as advised by assessment.

Therapy is integral to teaching and learning and the life of the school. It is a team approach with teachers, support assistants and therapists all working together to meet the needs of the children.

We cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into our son. You are amazing and we appreciate everything you have done for us as a family.
