Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the quality of life and health and well-being of individuals.
We work with people to identify and maximise their movement and function potential through health promotion, preventative healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation. We assess a patient holistically, taking into account biological, psychological and social circumstances.
Physiotherapy should be an important part of a child’s day and incorporated into their daily routine at school
It shouldn’t be laborious; it is a time for interaction and engagement
Classroom staff should be aware of each child’s physiotherapy programme and the rationale for the exercises set
The physiotherapist will support classroom staff in feeling confident in their own abilities to carry out the physiotherapy programmes
The physiotherapist will assess your child’s needs formally using assessment tools/ outcome measures or informally through discussion and observations.
