We believe that sharing of knowledge and skills is essential for the benefit of the child. Communication and collaboration is our priority and we make sure that those who are involved in the care of each child are invited into the therapy sessions so that everyone knows how best to help the child whether at home or at school.
How we can work together
Cerebral Palsy Cymru aims to work with and support our community colleagues. In turn, we are very grateful for the huge amount of support we receive from community teams. Together we can achieve more for children and families. Here are just some of the ways we can work together.
- We invite each child’s community therapists to join our sessions in the centre.
- In many of our sessions in the community, we work together, with children and families, sharing clinical reasoning, problem-solving, and suggesting therapy ideas.
- We provide training and education courses for therapists.
