A course of Targeted Training therapy takes place over 9-12 months. It includes:
- A tailored therapy package
- Regular physiotherapy assessments every eight weeks with a dedicated physiotherapist and Physiotherapy Assistant
- The loan of a piece of specialist equipment, which is tailored to the specific measurements of each child, and is an essential part of the therapy
- A six month review appointment
Please see Your Child’s Course of Targeted Training for full details.
Targeted Training is a specialist therapy and because of this it falls outside the remit for standard NHS funding. While we can help you try for funding through your local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, it is not guaranteed. Therefore, many of the children who attend The Movement Centre are not currently able to access NHS funding.
Support from The Movement Centre
If NHS funding is not available our team are available to offer support and advice. We will support you through the process and discuss the different funding and fundraising options available for Targeted Training therapy. Furthermore, due to our fantastic donors and fundraisers, we are also able to offer assistance towards the cost of therapy for many of the families who come to The Movement Centre.
