Job Description

The Percy Hedley Foundation provides services for a range of young people and adults with physical disabilities and other associated difficulties. In our schools specialist teachers, therapists and special support assistants provide an integrated approach to working with children who have difficulties including cerebral palsy, sensory impairment, ASD and associated behavioural difficulties, and profound and multiple learning difficulties.

We require a full-time, temporary Occupational Therapist to work at Hedleys Northern Counties School in Jesmond. Children at the school fall into three populations – hearing impaired with additional needs, ASD with associated behavioural difficulties, and PMLD with complex health needs. This role will involve working in an integrated team of therapy, educational and care staff.

We require a qualified and HCPC occupational therapist with some relevant experience to provide input to a caseload of students with complex ASD, physical, communication, sensory and learning difficulties. The focus is on a combination of individual and small group sessions delivered collaboratively and in an integrated way with the trans-disciplinary team. There are good opportunities for CPD and clinical supervision. Northern Counties School is a vibrant and expanding service which offers a supportive and dynamic working environment. The school is based in Jesmond, Newcastle and informal visits are welcomed.
