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.
