Rosehill is a multicultural, decile 2, specialist school for students with ORS funding. Our students are aged 5 to 21 and 50% have a diagnosis of Autism. We have a base school with 9 classes, 23 classes based in mainstream schools and a large community based facility for young adult learners. 

We have a multi-disciplinary therapy team which includes SLT's, OT's, PT's and a psychologist. Therapists have a set caseload and work collaboratively with the class team (teacher, teacher aides and therapists) and whānau to ensure learners reach their physical potential, and can participate in the curriculum and all aspects of school life. This role involves upskilling staff, working with small groups or individuals and problem solving adaptations. There is also opportunity to develop school wide initiatives  such as Yoga, physical literacy and healthy lifestyles.

  • Have excellent interpersonal skills and be a team player
  • A positive 'can-do' attitude and the ability to think 'outside the box' 
  • The ability to work collaboratively with other therapy disciplines
  • Be guided by current research and open to trying new approaches.

We offer a friendly, professional, improvement focused work environment, professional development opportunities and we support innovation and new ideas.
