Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a great way for working with learning disabilities and SEND in young people and adults. Our specialists are trained to modify the ways students think and behave by talking through problems and finding ways of dealing with them.
Re-enacting their personal stories via a dramatic reproduction can stimulate the inner experience and provide a healthy catharsis. Drama therapy helps students to gain personal insight and to achieve improved interpersonal communication skills.
Speech and Language therapy can aid communication in students with cognitive learning disabilities and SEND. It can also help students to overcome psychological barriers that can arise as a result of social anxiety or other external factors.
Students that require occupational therapy are referred to the local authority occupational therapy department who work closely with the students at EMA and their support team.
This is not an exhaustive list of the therapies we can offer students, please get in touch to find out more.
