We provide bespoke occupational therapy and physiotherapy sessions for children and young people with sensory motor disorders, which can be provided at Pace, in your child’s principal school setting, or at home.
Therapy sessions can work to promote your child’s attention, motor skills, handwriting, perceptual development, independence, self confidence and self esteem. Therapy can be provided following surgery, for example following selective dorsal rhizotomy.
Goals are set at the beginning of therapy and will involve you, your child and their school. Every child is different. Sometimes we will recommend a block of individual or small group sessions. In some instances we will suggest advice clinics. If we don’t think we can provide the best support for you and your child, we will signpost you to a more appropriate service.
Our therapists use a range of different treatment approaches depending on your child’s needs. Our therapists are trained in sensory integration, Bobath approach, conductive education, post op rehabilitation, postural and mobility management, hydrotherapy and hippotherapy.
