Physiotherapy

The Physiotherapy team offer a range of specialist programmes and interventions  that are bespoke to the physical health needs of students. These are integrated into the curriculum ensuring that they are delivered in a continuous and functional way by staff supporting the student.  Physiotherapists ensure students are in an optimal position to access the curriculum.  Detailed assessments are undertaken to establish student specific needs.  Bespoke plans are created by the physiotherapist and implemented by curriculum staff to support students. The Physiotherapists work with the curriculum team to ensure all staff are optimally trained and competent around manual handling and postural management.

Interventions or programmes may include:

  • Pain management
  • Postural management
  • Mobility (Gait and balance)
  • Review of wheelchair management with Occupational Therapy
  • Manual handling assessments
  • Maintaining muscle and joint length and integrity
  • Review and provision of specialist equipment
  • Respiratory support
  • Gait and Balance
  • Rebound Therapy
  • Aquatic Therapy/Hydrotherapy (prescribed blocks)
  • Cardiovascular Fitness

The Physiotherapists work closely with community therapy, wheelchair and orthotic services, families and other teams to ensure students have a smooth transition into college and out to their community.

 

Outcomes for learners are outstanding, teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and the extremely diverse programmes that meet learners’ individual needs, interests and aspirations, prepare them very well for life after College.
