Intensive rehabilitation blocks (including SDR)

We provide individual or small group blocks of intensive therapy which include land/gym based and hydrotherapy sessions each day for one or two weeks. Most of our clients have cerebral palsy, a spinal cord injury or brain injury. We match groups by age and GMFCS Level. Goals are agreed at the initial assessment and achievements are reviewed on the last day. Your client will be provided with a report for their team at home, and a hand over of their programmes to continue at home and/or in their local or school pool if they have access to one.

We also run 3, 5 and 10 day SDR rehabilitation programmes.
