What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a condition affecting the immature tissues of the brain at or after birth. It can cause difficulty with development and a child can struggle to achieve their normal developmental milestones.
Neurological Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists work with you and your child to optimise their opportunities for normal movement experiences to enable them to integrate with and learn from their environment.
Most people with cerebral palsy will find therapy beneficial at different stages throughout their life.
What can we offer?
The therapy team at SP Therapy Services understand how cerebral palsy can have an effect on all aspects of your child’s life, and how problems can change or develop as a child grows and meets the challenges of puberty and maturity. Most children have access to a school therapy team, we can liase with your child’s school therapy team and provide after school sessions and intensive blocks of treatment during school holidays.
Whilst all our team are confident and competent in treating both adults and children with Cerebral Palsy we have two Children’s specialists Liz Cowan, Physiotherapist and Karen Vercoe, Occupational Therapist. For more information about their skills you can read their profiles.
For some families, their rehabilitation process runs alongside a compensation claim. At SP Therapy Services our therapy and support teams are experienced in dealing with case managers and solicitors and providing them with the necessary information they need.
We can provide home visits and clinic appointments.
