Transdisciplinary Team Approach

At Craig y Parc School our staff work collaboratively using a transdisciplinary team approach. This approach involves professionals sharing roles, with blending of skills, teaching and learning. The transdisciplinary team meets weekly and explores each student’s ‘journey’. We view each child / young person holistically and within the context of their family and environment.

The integration of our services provides a seamless approach and ensures that each student’s areas of development are optimised.

A range of staff form part of each transdisciplinary team around each student including; Learning Support Assistants, Teachers, Conductors, Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists, Speech and language therapists, Nurses, Visual Impairment and hearing impairment specialist teaching support.

Our professional staff are on site and practice is firmly embedded within each classroom setting.

Physiotherapy

We directly employ physiotherapists who work with the children and young people within each department throughout their school day to support with accessing curriculum areas.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists (OTs) work with people of all ages to enable them to participate in daily life, to improve their health and wellbeing.

Nursing

Our nursing team enables the children and young people at the school to access all aspects of the curriculum by ensuring that their many health care needs are met.

Assistive Technologies

All students at the school are assigned an Assistive Technologist (AT) who works directly with the student to develop custom access solutions.
