At Discovery the Therapeutic Curriculum is carefully weaved throughout the school day. Central to the success of the curriculum above is the integration of therapeutic approaches. While this has been discussed in each key stage there are approaches and pedagogies that will arch across the whole academy.
All therapies are considered an integral part of pupil’s education and are carefully planned using specialist knowledge in a transdisciplinary model. The multidisciplinary team works together to provide a holistic approach encouraging independence, opportunities for greater access to the curriculum and the development of children’s physical and social wellbeing. Children have access to a variety of therapies to support their sensory, communication, speech and language and physical needs.
