Initial Appointment

Your therapist will provide a thorough assessment of your child’s posture looking closely at his/her postural alignment, spine, muscle tone and analyse how they move to gain insight as to what they find easy and what is difficult for them.  Please bring any your child in comfortable clothing, along with any orthotics they use.

Depending on your child’s age and their condition, we may include assessment of strength, flexibility, range of movement, balance and co-ordination.  We will use play activities and games as part of the assessment and treatment to make it as much fun as possible.

At the end of the session your therapist will recommend a treatment plan to meet your child’s individual needs, discussing the frequency of treatment with you and advise on any equipment purchases necessary if appropriate, along with any other referrals that may be needed to other professionals.
