Funded places available for Tayside children

Bobath Scotland currently has funding available to provide three children in Dundee, Angus or Perth and Kinross with a paid-for block of therapy sessions.

This is a great opportunity for families in the Tayside area, which is due to us receiving a sum of restricted funding.

There is also an option for some of this funding to be spent on home or school visits to the area.

Therapy sessions are tailored to each child and the goals they and their family want to achieve. Sessions are centred around play and designed to be a fun and positive experience. Typically, a Bobath physiotherapist and occupational therapist will work together with your child in each session, with input from a speech and language therapist if appropriate.

Francesca and her son Daniel, age 2, have attended therapy sessions at Bobath Scotland.

“For our first block of therapy, Daniel had Claire and Petra as his therapists. It is therapy, but they do it through play, so once they got to know Daniel they tried to build the therapy session round things he would like. Coming to Bobath, I learnt how to position him, how to dress him, how to move him, how to involve him in family life.

“Going to Bobath helped me to actively get him to do physio through his play. Once I got some basic ideas from Petra and Claire I was like, “Oh! I could do this in the house with another toy we have”.”
