As an OT Georgie also develops and delivers Inclusive learning programs to school students.
“Inclusive education programs are personalised to each school’s environment and can focus on specific skills like fine motor or social skills.
“These considerations allow me to develop engaging and fun learning strategies which involve all children in the class, not just the students who might be experiencing difficulties,” she said.
The SDSS program offers schools the opportunity to enhance learning outcomes for students. Our therapists are experienced in working with children and can provide support, information and advice to teachers in areas like communication, concentration, participation, and social engagement.
“Working in partnership with educational staff allows me to identify ways to increase engagement in the classroom and participation in school activities.
“Additionally, I aid teachers to develop learning observation skills to help with discerning children who may not have age-appropriate school skills,” Georgie explains.
Montrose can provide Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Physiotherapy support to students and schools through the SDSS program.
