Information for case managers and professionals

Our private therapy service is now available for babies, children, young people and adults living with cerebral palsy.

All our therapy sessions are conducted by one of our highly specialist therapists who have extensive experience working with children and young people living with cerebral palsy.

The sessions will focus on the individuals’ needs, helping them to move towards greater levels of participation in the things they need and want to do.

The team has been truly amazing and really supportive to us as a family at a really difficult time in our lives.

The physiotherapists at Cerebral Palsy Cymru have worked with us to provide Verity with the right positioning and handling to help her achieve the milestones we all expect our children to reach.

With every session we attend, we learn so much and we all see an improvement in Verity. Without this service, I fear we would not get the guidance needed to support Verity so that she can reach her potential.”

Lindsey, Verity’s mum

Why choose us?

We provide therapy that is tailored to your clients needs.

Our team have extensive experience working with individuals of all ages who have cerebral palsy, and are specialists in their field.

Our team consists of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech & language therapists, who work in a transdisciplinary way to ensure your clients’ needs will be met holistically and will draw on all the evidence based therapies available.

Our transdisciplinary approach
enables us to plan the most appropriate therapy for your client, always with the main aim of reaching their goals and increasing their confidence and abilities, which may range from improved ability to play, dress themselves or join in conversations.

We measure progress through joint goal setting, standardised outcome measures, therapist observations and structured feedback forms.

We acknowledge that every individual’s needs are different, and therefore we approach every client differently and provide them with a tailored therapy service that responds to their and their families' needs.
