School Services

At SPOT, we want to ensure that we support each child to develop in all areas of their lives, this includes the school enironment. In an ideal world every student would have access to child development services both inside and outside of school, for as long as they need it. Our dedicated School Services team is coordinated by Kate Powell and provides the same standard of input that you have come to expect from our SPOT Centres.

All SPOT clinicians:

-       Send reports to schools following agreement with parents. (We do recommend this).

-       Provide specific recommendations to teaching staff following assessment.

-       Liaise with class teachers of the children we see.

In-School

SPOT has Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Clinical Psychologists providing high quality support in multiple schools around Hong Kong. 

How this can happen in your school:

1)    We just need a minimum of 3 children (depending on distance of travel).

2)    An appropriate room to provide the therapy.

3)    The school coordinator will help set up the service with the therapist and school to ensure a smooth transition.

We have a specific school pathway, pre-referral checklists to aid the referral process from teachers.  Free screeners are offered (as appropriate) in schools when a therapist is working in that school.

SPOT will coordinate with parents for payment of sessions.

The school coordinator role includes:

-       First point of contact at SPOT for teachers with queries about children they do not know who to refer to.

-       Coordination of referrals from schools to ensure correct discipline and specialization are provided.

-       Offer phone discussion or school visit to discuss our services within SPOT including our wide variety of assessments and treatment options.

For further information on any school based enquiries for your school, please contact Kate Powell, school service coordinator at kate.powell@spot.com.hk

Psycho-Educational Screener in schools:

This new innovated service has been devised to help ease access to educational psychology services and reduce costs for more children.  This is a screeing service and is therefore not a full Educational Psychology Assessment but does look at cognitive functioning (IQ) and academic abilities (reading, writing, math), as well as attention, language, listening ability and memory.  Full reports with Conclusions and Recommendations are provided.  For more information, please contact Amanda at amanda.oswalt-visher@spot.com.hk

"When we first came to see Zara, our son M was not verbal. He was not regulated because he was unable to communicate his needs and wants to us. The first few sessions that we had with Zara was more of getting the trust of our son to play with her and be more comfortable with her. Each session with her was not just about helping our son to communciation to us at home. We were able to practice and extend that therapy sessions from Zara's office to our home because of the ideas and knowledge she has shared with us. After a few months of sessions with Zara, our son M can now verbally communicate his needs and wants to us and has expanded his vocabulary. Because of the trust and patience that Zara has shown to our son, our son is always looking forward to his sessions with her. We are happy with the progress of our son from being non verbal to a child who can now talk to us, read aloud and sing his nursery fhymes. Thank you Zara!"
