Physiotherapy for Children
In our Children and Young People's Integrated Therapy (CYPIT) services, we offer an integrated approach to assessment and care planning so that the right people are involved in assessing you or your child and supporting you to achieve your goals.
We are a team of specialist paediatric physiotherapists. Our aim is to help achieve positive outcomes working towards goals that are functional, meaningful & important for your child. We work closely in partnership with children/young people, parents, carers, education staff and a range of professionals to help your child achieve the goals that we have agreed with you.
We help children to:
- develop their gross motor skills
We can also advise on:
- postural needs
- mobility (including walking)
- specialist equipment (specialist seating, standing equipment, mobility aids, splints etc.)
If you have concerns or want to know more about normal child development, you can find information and strategies to try at home or in school on our CYPIT toolkits.
We work directly with children and through school staff and parents, providing recommendations, strategies, and/or programmes of exercises/activities to be carried out to support your child in a range of different environments. We can also deliver training and education for both parents and school staff to ensure ongoing development for your child.
