Transitions between educational establishments
The transition between schools or colleges is a time of anxiety and distress for most children and young adults. Furthermore, the upheaval from a familiar environment and well-known staff can be a time of great concern for parents with a child that has physical or social problems. At Physio.co.uk, our specialist paediatric physiotherapists can provide a one-off assessment and report writing service to avoid interruption to your child’s learning and minimise disturbance to routine.
It is essential that your child’s safety is maintained at all times. At Physio.co.uk we provide assessments and reports that outline the potential hazards that could risk your child’s safety and how to avoid harming your child. Our specialist paediatric physiotherapists will assess who is at risk, the level of the risk and what can be done to reduce the risk. For example, there may be a risk your child could fall, have a seizure, develop muscle tightness or respiratory complications. We will document the potential of this occurring and what can be done in prevention.
Moving and Handling Assessments
Moving and handling is a specialist area of physiotherapy. At Physio.co.uk, our physiotherapists are trained in specialist paediatric handling techniques. Our physiotherapists will assess your child’s physical ability to move around and provide a high standard of written guidance as to the most appropriate and safe method of transfers and mobility for your child. For example, a report or training may be required to show carers the safest method of transferring your child from lying in bed to being sat in a wheelchair. We are also able to offer guidance and support with adaptations to the environment. For example, it is advisable to gain professional advice and assessment of your child’s ability prior to the purchase of a major adaptation such as a stair lift or a through floor lift.
Physiotherapy recommendation reports are written by specialist paediatric physiotherapists at Physio.co.uk for case managers, solicitors and insurance companies. Following a detailed neurological physiotherapy assessment a high standard of report will be written detailing your child’s condition and whether your child will benefit from further treatment. We will discuss your child’s problems and set some realistic short and long term goals to work on. The report will include the suggested amount of physiotherapy, frequency, location of treatment sessions and the timescale. Treatment can be provided in your home, clinic, in the gym or hydrotherapy pool depending on your child’s problems and clinical presentation.
Recommendations for Aids and Equipment
Following a thorough physical assessment by a specialist paediatric physiotherapist from Physio.co.uk we are able to provide written documentation to recommend the purchase or rental of equipment, aids and adaptations. These reports may be of interest to parents, schools or case managers. Our physiotherapists are able to recommend the use of equipment to help your child sleep comfortably, sit in normal posture, stand in alignment and walk effectively. Equipment may include sleep systems, positioning aids, specialist seating, standing frames and mobility aids. Other equipment which would increase your child’s participation in physiotherapy treatment may also be included such as a trike or toys to increase sensation.
