We aim to provide the students at St Piers College with the skills they need for life after college.
Our occupational therapists work closely with students to understand their strengths and weaknesses to help them to develop the skills they need. This could be safety, movement activity groups, or advice and provision of equipment to the environment, for example, specialist equipment like adapted cutlery, kitchen equipment or specialist seating.
To make sure each student receives the best possible care, we use informal and standardised assessments and liaison with carers, parents and other professionals to develop holistic therapy programmes tailored for each individual.
Students are also observed during the classroom and at leisure time to make sure they continue to develop their skills.
