We provide different treatment packages to meet your child's needs. This can be regular and gradual if you live nearby to in-depth and intensive therapy for those who can only visit occasionally. We also offer consultations with a senior Bobath therapist.

Two-week block of therapy

A block consists of a detailed assessment of your child's condition by a lead clinician followed by intensive therapy. Intensive therapy over a short period can result in a cumulative gain in skills for your child.

Based on the assessment, a team of specialist Bobath therapists will work with your child over a ten-day period. This will be a combination of physio, occupational and speech & language therapists depending on your child's needs. Daily sessions typically last 75 minutes.

You are present at all times which will allow you to learn strategies and techniques to manage your child's condition at home.

At the end of your visit you will be given a home programme of exercises for your child and a detailed report will be sent to you and any nominated health professionals shortly after.

Suitable for children who:

  • are visiting for the first-time
  • are in need of intensive therapy
  • cannot attend regularly
  • require an annual assessment
  • travel long distances

Consultations

We can offer a 90-minute consultation with a senior therapist or two 90-minute consultations with two senior therapists e.g. a physiotherapist and a speech & language therapist. During the consultation your Bobath therapist will suggest appropriate activities and will practise these with parents and local therapists.

  • may not have a formal diagnosis
  • have one or two specific issues to be addressed
  • are not ready to commit to therapy

Therapy mix

The number of specialist therapists working with you and your child is determined by your child's specific needs.
