School and college
We are advocates for your child’s right to be happy and included in school life. We will make staff aware of what help your child needs to enable them to be as independent as they can be in the environment.
We will advise on how changes to the environment, or the activity, can make school more inclusive.
At SP Therapy Services we recognise times of change can be particularly challenging – from moving classes to changing schools, we can help with this process.
At SP Therapy Services, we have experts in the field of children and adults, and we have experience of working with people through from childhood to adulthood. There is no need to move to another service and explain yourself all over again. When the time comes for your child to move to one of our adult specialists we will do so in a way that suits you, with a gradual getting to know you period.
The Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists write about transition:
‘Transition should never be considered a sprint, a baton pass or simply the event of transfer between paediatrics and adult care. Transition is in reality a marathon, starting on the day of diagnosis. Transition is an age and developmentally appropriate process, addressing the psychosocial and educational/ vocational aspects of care in addition to the traditional medical areas. Transition starts within paediatrics but continues on into adult services and is therefore, by definition, a paediatric and adult concern.’
We can provide home visits & clinic appointments.
SP Therapy Services take great care in providing an exceptional standard of therapy to all our patients, whatever their individual age, diagnosis or location.
