Transitions: Helping children through change

Growing up is an adventure and a challenge: Imagine making this journey from a wheelchair or with speech difficulties that make it hard for you to be understood. For the children attending Bobath Scotland therapy, it is not an ordinary childhood. Please help children through times of change.

Situation

1 in 500 children in Scotland are diagnosed with cerebral palsy each year. It is a lifelong condition caused by damage to the brain before, during or after birth. Children with cerebral palsy feel different from their peers. Confidence is often low and participation can be difficult. Times of change present very specific problems. If children and young people do not receive the support they need at the right time, participating in educational, recreational and community life is made more diffic

Solution

By providing therapy, Bobath Scotland will support children and young people at critical stages in their development. We will ensure families have the skills they need to confidently continue this in everyday life. Children and young people with cerebral palsy and their families will be able to make the most of their abilities, feel better understood and have enough information to manage to the changes that growing up brings, particularly in changes like moving from primary to secondary school.
