Pauline Holbrook, The Movement Centre’s Head of Clinical Services, attended Lanyon Bowdler’s Brain Injury Networking Forum in Shrewsbury on 22nd November, which gives attendees the opportunity to coin the the discussions from their hugely successful conference ‘Surviving Brain Injury: The Journey’.
It is a great opportunity to meet with other individuals and organisations. Pauline is pictured with representatives from Megan Baker House who were able to share more details about their services. We believe it is very important for TMC to develop links with other organisations in our field and we are always happy to sign post families.
Megan Baker House (MBH) is a registered charity that provides on-going services for children and adults of all ages with neurological movement disorders (such as cerebral palsy, dyspraxia, Parkinson’s’, stroke and brain injury) using the methods of conductive education.
This is an educational movement approach that teaches individuals how to manage and deal with the difficulties and challenges caused by their condition, and to promote their independence and confidence.
MBH offer regular small group sessions at both centres where individuals will work on all aspects of movement, alongside cognitive skills, social skills, self-care, speech and writing.
At the new Ledbury centre, MBH is offering additional, specific speech and writing sessions, taking place once a month, for individuals with Parkinson’s.
