RISE NI for parents

13 January 2021 (by admin)

New RISE NI Parent website launched

The Regional Integrated Support for Education team in Northern Ireland (RISE NI) works in partnership with schools to support children’s learning across all areas of the curriculum. This includes the social and academic skills required to give the children the best chance to succeed in the future. The trans-disciplinary team which includes occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, behaviour specialists, clinical psychologists and therapy assistants, work with children and education staff in mainstream nursery and primary schools.

On 11th January 2021 a regional website specifically for parents and carers of children in mainstream nursery and primary school (up to P4) was launched with the aim to provide support and information digitally. The RISE NI information leaflets, suggested activities/resources and parent training videos aim to promote development of speech and language, fine and gross motor skills, and social and emotional development.

RISE NI teams from across all 5 of Northern Ireland’s Health and Social Care Trusts contributed to the website which was designed and built ‘in-house’ by a Belfast Trust occupational therapist and speech and language therapist.
