Our dream is to see SaLT and OT working collaboratively in schools to help children and young people reach their potential. Although ‘Language and Communication’ is the most significant need within schools, we acknowledge the vital impact Occupational Therapy has on children and young people’s well being and attainment. Furthermore, at Words First, we realise how important it is for SaLTs to have access to other professionals in order to have a thorough and well-rounded view of a child’s needs. 


Our team of Occupational Therapists travel to schools in London (and the Home Counties) to offer bespoke packages of support, from one-off assessments to regular weekly sessions and specialist reviews for Sensory Integration rooms.

Our Occupational Therapy team and Speech and Language Therapy team aim to offer an interdisciplinary approach through regular collaboration, information sharing and training. Schools have the choice to buy in one or both services through Words First. If you require any more informaiton about how SaLT and OT work together, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Director Amanda (amanda@wordsfirst.uk).
