At The Movement Centre we provide physiotherapy for children with movement difficulties and specialise in Targeted Training, an evidence based, life changing therapy, for children who have Cerebral Palsy and other movement disabilities.
What is Targeted Training therapy?
Targeted Training is a physiotherapy for children with movement difficulties has been developed to help children gain control of their movement. Through a course children can gain new skills and independence, which can have a huge impact on their lives.
Many of the children who come to The Movement Centre have Cerebral Palsy or Global Developmental Delay, but Targeted Training therapy can also be suitable for children who have an acquired brain injury, Down Syndrome and other Genetic Disorders. We work closely with families and the course of therapy is tailored to each child’s specific needs.
Support is given directly beneath where control is an issue. As each child makes progress the level of support is lowered so that they can continue to develop movement control. This mimics the way in which movement control is naturally developed in a young infant, from the head downwards.
Every child has an initial assessment to determine if Targeted Training is suitable. If so, a specialist standing frame will be supplied. Targeted Training is specific and accurate, and you will be given guidance and support to practice the therapy at home. Continuity is important and we ask families to commit to 30 minutes a day.
