    Approach

    • Evidence based with reference to NICE guidelines. Based on ICF - promoting participation and activity, reviewing and monitoring joint ranges, muscle length and strenth and function
    • Neurodevelopmental approach using mixture of hands on techniques and approaches gained through many years of experience
    • Postural management plays a key role and physiotherapists work with school staff and parents to provide advice and good positioning across a 24- hour period
    • Multi disciplinary working with other therapists, medical and school staff
