School Age Services
St. Michael’s House school age clinical services are co-ordinated by a schools team co-ordinator.
Each school age team has input from the following clinical disciplines:
- Social Work
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech & Language
In order to receive clinical input a child must be referred to the clinical team each time a specific need arises. Parents and/or schools can make a referral to the clinical team. This is done by completing a clinical team referral form that includes consent from the child’s parent or carers.
The team adopts a tiered approach when offering clinical inputs, i.e. inputs are provided at different levels depending on the needs of the individual child.
Clinical inputs include:
- Training - child, parent and school
- Whole School Approach
- Family Supports
- Individual Supports
Depending on the referral need there may be input from one or more clinicians.
St. Michael’s House has made some changes to how school age clinical services are delivered. Since October 2018, St. Michael’s House School Age Teams created 4 School Age Teams for school going children on the Northside organised by where you live and 1 School Age Team for school going children on the Southside. Where you child attends a St. Michael’s House Special National school or attends a special class in a mainstream school, they will receive services based on the school’s address.
The school teams are organised by;
- your Childs home address
- your Child attends a St. Michael’s House Special National school and the school address
- your Child attends a special class in a mainstream school. In this case, your child will receive services based on the school’s address.
