Therapies

Speech & Language Therapy
BOP is fortunate to have an experienced Speech & Language Therapist who is in attendance most days in order to reach all of the children. She works alongside our long standing Speech & Language Therapy Assistant who also works with all of the children both individually and in small group sessions.

Music & Movement
BOP has been working with the Music Therapist from Three Ways School to hold weekly Music & Movement sessions. Music Therapy provides cognitive stimulation and helps children who have trouble with communication express their emotions and improve their communication skills in a verbal and non verbal manner. It helps improve self awareness and confidence.

 

Attention Autism Group

Attention Autism is a programme which uses visually engaging activities to develop children’s ability to engage in joint attention with others, extend that attention and develop the ability to attend for brief periods to simple language describing that activity. Children learn to wait, to take a turn within a group without losing focus and learn to follow simple instructions. It is suitable for a range of difficulties with attention, listening and delayed language development.

Staff at BOP are trained by Speech and Language therapists to carry out Attention Autism Groups. The Speech and Language Therapist will advise staff on which children would be appropriate to attend which level of group.

Visiting Professionals
BOP has close links with other professionals supporting children with additional needs and their families. Once a child is attending BOP it becomes an ideal place for a child to receive ASD Support, physiotherapy sessions, occupational therapy and educational psychology assessment.

TAC PAC®

TAC PAC® (Tactile Approach to Communication) is an activity that combines touch and music to promote communication, social interaction, sensory, neurological and emotional development. We have a variety of ‘Packs’ that relate to a range of sensory and tactile experiences. This approach to communication is suitable for all children and we find that it helps to build trust, security and stronger relationships. Weekly sessions are held with practitioners who have been trained by specialist Speech & Language Therapists.
