The Physiotherapist applies physiotherapy skills and knowledge to the assessment of the child and the design, delivery and evaluation of a treatment programme for the management of neonates, infants, children and adolescents with disabilities. Our aims to maximize the child’s physical potential within the framework of Family Cantered Care using developmentally appropriate intervention.
We Evaluate a child’s ability in relation to his/her gross motor development and produce an assessment, advising parents and medical staff on the child’s needs. Specific assessments are often requested by education as part of a child’s “Assessment of special educational needs”, or by social services “Children’s with disability team” identifying a child’s present needs in order to find suitable careers or future needs to plan housing needs or alterations.
Advice parents, care-givers and the child, if old enough, on the condition and informing them on various physiotherapy options working in partnership with them on the most appropriate strategies to enable each child to achieve his/her potential.
We work closely with the child’s care- givers teaching through demonstration handling techniques to encourage the child’s gross motor development or specific techniques to maintain the child’s health
