Therapeutic Support

At The Stable School we have adopted a trauma informed and holistic approach to our pupil’s development. This means that therapeutic needs are addressed in every area of school life and a therapeutic approach is integrated into our classroom experience. Our specialists (including Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Trauma Informed School Diploma Practitioners, and ELSA trained staff) work with individuals, groups and whole classes alongside school staff to upskill all practitioners. This approach ensures sensory integration, communication support and trauma informed practise happens in every classroom throughout the school day.
