Physiotherapy Programme

The physiotherapy service at JCSRS is provided when a student needs support with the following areas:

Mobility/negotiating the school (walking patterns, stair management, wheelchair skills etc)
Transition skills (on/off school bus, keeping pace, sitting to standing)
Balance (stability in movement)
Co-ordination (throwing, catching, kicking)
Gross motor skills (jumping, hopping, PE lessons, sports)
Posture and positioning (maintaining supported posture in lessons, adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs and standing frames)

The physiotherapy department is well resourced to support students with physical disabilities including a variety of mobility aids, standing frames and suspension equipment for accessing a treadmill. The physiotherapy service also includes access to hydrotherapy in our specially heated pool.
