Therapy at School

Having your therapist attend your child's school to provide therapy can be great for families with busy schedules, especially during the school year. However, there are a number of steps involved in having your Therapist visit your child's school for therapy.

Eligibility Criteria

School therapy can be great for busy families, however due to high demand, we do have strict eligibility criteria for patients and families who wish to have their therapist travel to school.

​To access school therapy through our clinic, patients must:

  • Complete All Assessments prior to school therapy

  • Have a good attendance record

  • Commit to attending appointments outside of school period (we can't hold spots for school therapy only)

  • Complete all required paperwork

Paperwork Complete

All paperwork must be completed and provided to us 2 months before school starts.

Discuss Availability

All of our therapists have a designated travel schedule and service area so we encourage families to discuss the possibility of school therapy with their therapist and our friendly team first.

 

Please keep in mind that School Therapy isn't beneficial for all children so have a chat with your therapist to see if this is something that would work well for your child.

Requesting School Therapy

If you've already explored availability with your therapist or engaged in discussions with our clinic, the step-by-step resource below will walk you through the process.

01

Complete Access Request

The primary relationship regarding the student is between the school and the parent. Parents should fill out an NDIS access request form given by their child's school. To obtain a copy, please reach out to your school.

 

It's important to note that NDIS providers are not allowed to request access directly from the school.

02

Additional Information

The school might require additional details from the student's parent(s) to reach a decision, which could require a face-to-face meeting. NDIS providers may be invited to participate in the meeting, or parents may request their assistance in supplying more information to the school.

All information must be directly provided by the parent to the school.

03

School Decision

The principal will communicate the decision to the parent(s) through a letter. This letter will contain the necessary details that the school needs before signing an Access Agreement.

Parents hold the responsibility of informing both the NDIS provider about the school's decision and requesting the NDIS provider to provide the additional information specified in the letter.

04

Therapist Information

Upon the school decision, the Therapist will provide information for the Access Request including staff details, certifications, insurance coverage, and specifics about the nature of NDIS support at the school during school hours, as well as any proposed use of school equipment or materials.

05

Access Request Agreement

The school, student's parent(s), and NDIS provider mutually sign the Access Agreement form, outlining the terms and conditions for delivering NDIS support at the school during school hours.

06

Provider Training

The Access Agreement mandates that NDIS provider staff delivering support at the school during school hours must complete mandatory training. This may include the school's MAST training, school-specific inductions, and any additional training required by the school principal for child protection or health care needs.
