We ask you for some quite detailed information as soon as you register to make sure we assign the best therapist to suit your child’s specific needs.
We’ll contact you nearer the start of your week for current information about your child’s abilities, requirements and goals, so we can plan your individual sessions in more detail.
Even if you’re a repeat client, it’s amazing how much can change in a short space of time so we need to learn about any progress you’ve made, find out if there have been any growth spurts or changes, if you have new goals and any other new information which may be relevant.

Of course, you can bring the whole family. It’s an ideal opportunity to enjoy downtime together, relax or explore the local area.

It’s close enough to your week to be current and up-to-date but allows the time we need to do any additional research to ensure we give you the best possible support.
We may contact you for more information from your existing therapists or practitioners at home, all of which takes time to come through. We can then choose or create activities suited to your needs and put together your tailor-made schedule.
You know your child better than anyone. We include you in the planning process to make sure we support you as a family as well as give the best therapy solutions to help achieve your goals.
