Support for children

At Bobath, we provide a range of services to help children with cerebral palsy make the most of their abilities and reach their full potential. Children’s therapy is available for any person up to 18 years of age who lives in Scotland and who has a primary diagnosis of cerebral palsy.

We offer intensive therapy blocks which take place over the course of six weeks, and involve parents, carers and family members to ensure that treatment is carried over into everyday life. We can also provide regular therapy sessions. For information on funding therapy at Bobath, please see our guidance on funding

We also run a range of groups for children and young adults that are fully funded:

  • Bobath Babies – a fortnightly group for children aged 0-2 and their families
  • Bobath Buddies – an annual holiday club for primary school children aged 5-11, that takes place in October
  • Teen Academy – an annual group for young adults, that takes place in the summer

If you would like to speak to someone about how to access Bobath therapy, please contact us here. If you would like to refer your child for therapy, please fill in our referral form.

What is Bobath Therapy?

Therapy is delivered at our cerebral palsy therapy centre in Glasgow, by our team of highly trained specialists. Bobath involves a trans-disciplinary approach that includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy, and the main aim is to encourage and increase a person’s ability to move and function in as normal a way as possible. With the intervention of Bobath therapy we help the person to change their abnormal postures and movements so that they are able to comfortably adapt to their environment and develop a better quality of functional skills. For more information on the benefits of Bobath therapy, please visit our FAQs.

If you have any further questions please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
