Therapy servicesSteps Therapy Services offers assessments, recommendations and school-based therapy support for children and young adults. Our team of professional therapists is here to help support your child in all areas of their development in a relaxed and friendly way.
NIST is in the second year of partnering with Steps to provide Occupational Therapy. This year, we also added Physical Therapy. The qualifications, experience, and level of collaboration and interpersonal skills that each therapist brings to our team-based approach at NIST is excellent. Our students are benefiting enormously from this support.

Speech and Language Therapy
Everyday tasks such as asking questions, making friends, expressing our needs, having fun, and learning at school all rely on our ability to communicate. Speech and Language Therapy can help support any aspect of speech, language and/or communication development.
This might include support for those who:
- Struggle to say certain sounds or make themselves understood
- Are taking longer than expected to learn to talk
- Have a limited vocabulary, struggle to form sentences, or get their words and sentences muddled up
- Find it difficult to understand what others are saying
- Struggle to communicate socially with others
Occupational therapy helps children with coordination, focus and organizational skills. It enables children with certain learning and attention issues perform the activities of daily living they struggle with.
Physiotherapy helps children and young people who have difficulty with movement. It focuses on short and long-term conditions which impact physical development, activity and a child’s ability to participate in play, learning and socialising.
Play Therapy helps children express or communicate their feelings. Children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, become more respectful and empathetic, and discover new, more positive ways to solve problems.
School and parent training
Steps Therapy Services also offers a range of tailored training packages for schools and parents to help support children’s social and academic development. More information on our training packages can be found here.
