"In 2012 I became aware of the adult services offered by Bobath and went for an assessment - excited but apprehensive. I remember the day clearly as it was the day that my lonely journey with cerebral palsy ended; I had a lifeline and support network in helping me to manage my condition."
At Bobath Scotland, we provide specialist therapy to those living with cerebral palsy (CP) in Scotland. Founded in 1995, the charity has grown and developed, both in the services that we provide and the number of people we are able to see. We offer support to anyone with a diagnosis of CP, regardless of their age or location, and endeavour to reach as many people as possible here at the centre, online, and in their own communities.
Bobath therapy is delivered by our team of specialist therapists who come from occupational, speech and language, and physiotherapy backgrounds. Our therapists each have a wealth of experience in their specific discipline whilst being well-versed in specialist Bobath therapy techniques.
During sessions, a team of two, or occasionally three, therapists will work together with you, and others who are involved in supporting you, such as family members, community therapists and support assistants. By involving your support system in the therapy sessions, we ensure that treatment is carried over into everyday life.
We also aim to complement local therapy input and co-ordinate therapy aims and management. Therefore, we contact community therapists prior to attendance at Bobath Scotland for a block of therapy, allowing us to establish progress, discuss any concerns and consider these factors when planning therapy aims.
First assessments are free of charge, and we are able to offer therapy blocks for adults at our Glasgow centre at a discounted rate, through the Helping Hands scheme.
