St Lucy’s therapy team consists of Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, and a School Psychologist. Their primary role is to support the teaching staff in encouraging students to access the curriculum to their best ability.
Therapists work closely with staff to meet students’ Individual Education Plan (IEP) goals.
St Lucy’s Therapy services model focuses on early intervention and transdisciplinary strategies. Therapists are allocated to spend time each week in the Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 classes. Stage 2 and 3 classes operate on a referral system. Referrals are welcomed from both teachers and parents, and are reviewed at weekly therapy team meetings.
Families are encouraged to continue to access private therapy services outside of the school. Private therapists are welcome to visit and observe once per term, and to contact the school therapists to share progress and goals.
