Help Could be at Hand
If you need practical help for children, teenagers or adults with motor disabilities, help could be at hand. We currently offer free conductive education for children with cerebral palsy, dyspraxia and other motor related disorders; and adults with Parkinson's disease or suffering from stroke or head injuries. It's not a miracle cure but it does offer a pathway to independence and the results can be impressive. To find out what help may be available, contact us or fill out an assessment form.
