Kerri-anne Telford (Paediatric Occupational Therapist) and Amanda Abel (Paediatric Psychologist) have joined forces to offer an exclusive School Readiness Program in the January School holidays prior to the commencement of school in 2016.
The Program will provide children in a small group (6 children max) with the opportunity to practice skills required for a successful transition to school. The children will have guided practice and support in skills such as gross motor, fine motor, social-emotional, and early literacy, along with appropriate sitting and mat time behaviours. Learning these skills in a supportive, structured and motivating environment will equip participants with exposure to the skills they need for successfully transitioning to school.
Kerri-anne and Amanda are highly experienced and will facilitate the sessions together. Following the completion of the program each child will be provided with a written report outlining their skills in each area along with strategies for the teacher in anticipation of their school entry in 2016. Reports will be completed and emailed on Friday the 29th of January.
The program will run across six sessions over two weeks in the Surrey Hills Clinic
