Assessing a young person’s therapeutic needs
When a young person first joins us at Eastwood Grange, we undertake a comprehensive six-week therapeutic assessment to identify their individual needs. From this, a report is compiled and the student’s therapeutic targets and objectives are updated to reflect their unique circumstances, challenges and abilities.
Specialist therapy spaces
Eastwood Grange has a purpose-built therapy suite with four dedicated therapy rooms, providing a specialised setting for our work with students.
Supporting young people to learn through therapy
Here at Eastwood Grange, therapy plays a crucial role in the work that we do with our young people. Our therapy team work side-by-side with staff to help young people get in a place where they are ready to learn. Our team is able to identify issues the young person may have that stop learning from taking place and then work to remove those barriers. All our therapists place a strong focus on helping young people to manage their emotions and self-regulation.
We find that a young person’s diagnosis might alter following the therapeutic work that we do with them. Our therapy team works closely with education and care staff to advise on the best approach to take within the classroom and how to tailor treatment to maximise a student’s chance of success.
