OTs work within the school and home environment to help solve children's difficulties and improve their ability to learn and overcome any problems in
participating in activities and daily living. Assessment and intervention is prioritised according to the child's need for example safety and postural management.

Music Therapy is currently available for Thomas Wolsey pupils two days a week (Thursday and Friday). Pupils are referred for a wide variety of reasons and receive a block of sessions which is extended if it is felt this would benefit the young person. Music Therapy is provided to the school through Suffolk Music Therapy Services.
