Topic for January SEN Event:

From Assessment to Intervention: The Role of Occupational Therapists and Clinical Psychologists in the School Success of SEN Students

This in-person event will take place at The LightHouse Arabia (Al Wasl Rd branch), and is open to Educators. It is a free-of-cost event.

Clinical Psychologists and Occupational Therapists (OTs) play crucial roles in the educational paths of students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Their collaboration is key in accurately pinpointing each student’s unique learning requirements. While Psychologists assess the cognitive and emotional aspects, offering diagnoses,as well as tailored strategies for managing emotions and enhancing social competencies, Occupational Therapists focus on practical skill development, ensuring students can navigate their daily school activities with greater ease and independence. Together, they craft an approach that not only supports their academic growth but also fosters their personal development, paving the way for a more inclusive and enriching educational experience.

Key takeaways for educators attending this in-person event:

  • Understanding the roles of clinical psychologists and OTs in SEN education, including referral processes.
  • Introduction to various psychological and OT assessments, featuring a case study.
  • Practical classroom strategies for aiding SEN students.
