Chelsea Children’s Therapy (CCT) in partnership with SEACC is delivering a free one hour session for families whose children will be starting primary school this autumn.
Starting school is a big step for any child and their family. Making sure you’re ready for the big day takes some planning and thought, so come along on to SEACC from 11am-12pm Friday 28 July to get all the tips you need to make this transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Run by Julia Terteryan (Occupational Therapist) Wiz Chiltern (Physiotherapist) and Leonie Kenny (Speech and Language Therapist), the session will cover the following topics:
- Getting to and from school
- In the playground (running, jumping and balance)
- In the classroom (cutting, sticking and colouring)
- Independence in school (managing shoes, bags and coats)
- Making friends (taking turns and listening)
- Language for learning
- And any questions you may have!
The session is completely free and children are welcome – the more the merrier!
More about Chelsea Children’s Therapy
Chelsea Children’s Therapy was founded by Julia Terteryan (Occupational Therapist) and Wiz Chilton (Physiotherapist), more than 15 years ago building on their extensive experience working within the NHS, private practice, mainstream and special education settings. They continue to work with a small team of therapists providing practical and functional therapeutic intervention to children either at school, at home or in a clinical setting.
CCT provides occupational and physiotherapy to children from infancy through to adolescence and beyond, in Central and Southwest London.
Therapists are experienced working in nurseries, primary and secondary schools in both the state and independent sector.
The practice is well known to a number of leading independent day schools and is regularly commissioned by local authorities to provide therapy for children who have an Educational Health Care Plan.
All therapists working within the practice believe firmly in early intervention to support children in reaching their potential. We have a strong commitment to working alongside parents and carers, teachers and other healthcare professionals to enable successful and fulfilling participation in the activities of daily life that some children find challenging at home, at school or in relation to their leisure pursuits.
