Physiotherapy at Home

Physiotherapists at Bridge College modified complex individual physio programmes to create one generic Physiotherapy at Home Programme for all students. The single page programme allows parents/carers to support their young people with appropriate exercises, simply explained.  The programme includes one individual task/outcome that is specific to the particular student’s current goals or aspirations. Their SALT team has produced a simple set of slides to explain intensive interaction to parents/carers so they can embed these strategies into everyday life at home and help their young people to continue to develop their social communication skills.

They provided families with a short descriptor of the approach including links to more information where appropriate.
