Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy
Here at Crowdys Hill School we can offer your child Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy sessions.
We have a designated physio room which is equipped with an overhead ceiling hoist, and we also have a plinth in the room.
We use the plinth for pupils to carry out various exercises which are essential to them, and the room is situated in a quiet area of the school.
Staff are trained to transfer pupils from their wheelchair, standing frame or walking frame onto the plinth.
Pupils have their own slings that we use during transfers.
During a physio session in school, we work on a programme that is specific to the needs of the pupil.
The pupil would have been assessed by the external Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist (and sometimes by both).
They then decide if the pupil may need fine motor or gross motor skill activities (again, sometimes they may need a combination of both).
The external Physio and/or OT would then write out a programme and we would deliver it during the school day.
Some pupils may use other equipment to aid standing, such as standing frames and walking frames.
We are in regular contact with the external Physio and OT and if we have any concerns, we can contact them so we can rectify any issues.
