Therapy at BESDS

Our therapy team make significant contributions to the learning and social development of students at the school. Speech and occupational therapists are based at the school, with regular additional support from a physiotherapist.

Through consultation with staff, families and students, the therapists provide strategies and guidance to help the team around our students enable the achievement of learning and social goals. 

Also, therapists can support families with submissions for specialised equipment, augmentative and alternative communication systems, orthotics and continence.

Every student at our school is eligible for NDIS support in their outside lives. We are supportive of the positive impact that the scheme is having for many. We have produced some school-specific guidance to further clarify the ways in which Burwood East Special Developmental School approaches NDIS requests from families and external therapists.
