Therapies

Many of our pupils have needs in addition to their learning difficulty. Westfield’s provision is enhanced by a team of visiting professionals who devise programmes for children in Speech and Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy. These programmes are delivered by staff across the school, working with the children on a daily basis.
Our Social Use of Language Programme gives pupils structured tuition in how to find the language they need in order to cope with everyday life.  We also from time to time have access to Therapy dogs.  These fantastic dogs support children in their development of empathy and understanding of others and can have a hugely beneficial impact on confidence and self-esteem.
