Working With Schools
At Tree Tops Children’s Occupational Therapy we are passionate about enabling other professionals to understand the nature of a child’s difficulties in particular with relation to movement coordination difficulties. We firmly believe educational staff should have this knowledge and know how such problems impact on a child’s learning, social and emotional well being.
We therefore run in-house training sessions to school staff who have children in our service. This involves a two hour session about Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and the cause of children’s difficulties with a practical session . Each participant leaves with a graded Motor Skills Programme to implement in school.
In order to provide more in depth knowledge about specific topics, we also offer a range of full day courses for educational staff focusing on:
- Motor Skills
Training Days for Teachers
It is our ultimate goal to bring allocated therapy time into the timetable of each school to benefit all children.
Visit our Teacher Training page for further information on the training courses we provide.

Our therapists at Tree Tops are passionate about working with educational staff to grow their knowledge and skills. School staff will be trained and supported when learning to work with children affected by sensory and motor difficulties to integrate the programmes designed for them.
Many children with learning difficulties will have sensory processing difficulties, causing them to struggle with every day experiences like movement and sound. We will assess and design individual programmes and work with teachers on how to implement these into children's routines.
Tree Tops believe all young children benefit from our therapeutic activities and interventions. Whilst we can provide programmes for developmentally delayed children, an integrated approach into the nursery environment ensures no children are overlooked.
