The cost of therapy will depend on how many sessions you require and how many therapists attend the sessions. Most children attend for intensive blocks of therapy lasting for up to six weeks, depending on individual need. Including the cost of evaluation and home reports/reference DVD, a block of therapy for each child can cost up to £5,000. Each session lasts approximately 1 hour with up to three therapists involved during sessions, although more often there are two involved.
If your child has been referred and you’re looking to self-fund or do some fundraising to support their treatment, we’ve put together guidelines for you that can be downloaded here.
Should you require any further information on self-funding, please don’t hesitate to contact Stephanie Fraser, CEO of Bobath Scotland, on 0141 352 5000.
