School LiaisonSchool Liaison Visits

This service aims to establish and maintain closer relationships with schools and relevant professionals involved in the development of children attending The Rainbow Centre.

The Conductor-Teachers visit schools on a regular basis.  During these visits the Conductor-Teacher may meet teachers, learning support assistants and head teachers to share information and experiences.  He/she may also observe the child in class, in transfer times, in PE lessons and during self-help activities.

 

Aims:

  • Establish/maintain good working relationships with all other professionals.
  • Promote independence, social and daily living skills in order for the children to become a more active member of the school/wider community.
  • Help families to understand their child’s particular needs and challenges, what school life brings to both children and staff.
  • Attend annual review meetings and encourage reciprocal visits.
  • Promote both physical and cognitive skills enabling children to have better access to the National Curriculum in their school.
  • Keep continuous contact with all therapists in order to share experiences and to agree new aims/targets/equipment/changes.
