Our Activities

Conductive Education

Conductive Education is learning for life. Purposeful, enabling, dynamic, it seeks to harness potential by creating new neural pathways in the brain resulting in improved functional ability and life skills.

Speech and Language Therapy

25% of all children with cerebral palsy are nonverbal therefore making their thoughts and feelings harder to express. Our highly skilled Speech and language therapist works with children to help them explore all forms of communication.

Outreach Services

Our Outreach worker provides support for families in their own home, on a 1-2-1 basis.  Ensuring that all children are involved in play and supporting them on their journey.

Swimming Sessions

Sessions are offered on either a Tuesday or Thursday for half an hour at a private hydrotherapy pool near Horsham. Children are able to build their stamina and move more freely while their body is supported by the water

Music Therapy

Music therapy is based on the belief that everyone has the ability to respond to music. Within sessions, a child is supported to access opportunities for communication and self-expression using a wide range of musical instruments, songs that the child knows and improved expressions.
