Our Approach

Our therapeutic model recognises that all the people we support are individual and our provision is tailored to meet their needs and wishes from the point of admission and throughout their journey with us.

Clinical support is led by the Head of Clinical Services and is delivered by a core team of clinicians to include Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists, Forensic Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech & Language Therapists.

Each service’s designated team will reflect the needs of the children, young people or adults that live and learn within the schools and or home, however additional support can also be accessed from other specialists within the wider Clinical Team. This enables us to be responsive to the newly identified, time limited or changing needs of an individual throughout their placement with us. Offering highly specialised assessment, consultation, reflective practice supervision, and bespoke training the Clinical Team work directly with education and care staff teams to develop a shared understanding of the skills, resources and practices in place. This ensures that we deliver the highest quality provision which maximises each person’s quality of life and personal achievements.

Within our children’s specialist schools the clinicians aim to reduce potential barriers to learning and educational success by working directly with the children and young people in line with their ECHP recommendations.

Our evidence informed models are based on best practice guidance and are governed through the Outcomes First Governance Framework.
