Physiotherapy helps to optimise movement and function through promoting active movement, developing a range of movement in joints and muscles, building strength, balance and improving posture. Physiotherapists work with all age groups who are identified as requiring physiotherapy.
The team work closely with each child/young adult and their family, in liaison with NHS and/or private Physiotherapists. Each identified child/young adult will have specific aims to target their main areas of need and help them to achieve their goals, which should be reviewed and evaluated regularly, with individual programmes in place to help enable progress.
Physiotherapists also assist in the assessment, review and adjustment of specialist equipment to aid a child/young adult’s movement and function, e.g. standing frames, walking frames, orthotics (such as ankle/foot splints) and postural management equipment.
Greenfield School has a number of staff who are trained to deliver the MOVE physiotherapy programme.
What is MOVE?
The vision of MOVE is: "for every disabled young person to have choice and opportunities by learning independent movement."
At Greenfield School we are proud to support our pupils in all physical achievements.
