At Multikids, Special Provision is tailored to meet the specific learning needs of each child. In addition to specialist teaching across the curriculum, the Senior Team ensures that therapy and learning needs are met. Special Provision includes Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and specialist teaching (teachers with additional skills to assess and implement the Individual Education Plan for each child). Educational Psychologists also provide assessment and advice for pupils.
Therapy is integrated into the curriculum on a daily basis through a transdisciplinary approach, where therapists team-teach with specialist teachers in subjects, so that skills are consolidated within the classroom. Therapy is also delivered on an individual, small group and class basis. This collaborative approach allows teachers and therapists to learn from each other, sharing skills and developing professionally for the benefit of the children.
