Drama therapy is a recent addition to our provision and enables an approach to developing communication and interaction using storytelling, role play, games and improvisation.
Sessions are provided weekly for between 30 and 45 minutes with additional time for the therapist to keep clinical notes and liaise with other professionals and family as required.
Therapists will assess need, design the programme to support transition or change, provide parent and staff support and liaison to help sustain the work being carried out beyond the session. They will contribute to professional consultation and report writing for assessment processes and review meetings and manage discharge processes at the end of the therapy.
The outcomes of therapy are varied and may for example include improved focus and concentration or reduced behavioural issues, better coordination and movement or increased communications. The effect of this in education settings is to increase the ability for the child to participate and engage with the curriculum and school life and thereby improving their progression in other areas of development.
