Physical Therapy Training

This evening at our staff training twilight, some staff have been taking part in a session run by the Physio and Occupational Therapists, looking at the equipment many of our children use - ‘Equipment for 24 hour positioning’. They have been learning about how children’s therapy programmes should be followed, the theory and then looking at and experiencing the practical side of using equipment for Standing, including Orthotics, Sitting, Walking and Lying. It was a fun, and informative session that will help our staff to think about how and why they support the children to use equipment for the best benefits. This session sits within a suite that we a running throughout this year to further improve the physical support aspects of our work here. A big thank you to the therapists for running the training.
