The Challenge

bobath

We were extremely lucky to attend The Bobath Centre in London last month, a centre of excellence treating children with Cerebral Palsy, many of whom travel miles to attend. We worked with Dr Virginia Wright a Physiotherapist and Clinical Scientist from Toronto in Canada to learn all about The Challenge observational measure for advanced gross motor skills.

Many of the children and young people we see have abilities and skills that are not fully captured by motor measures that are currently used, this gap could mean we don't fully understand their physical abilities and we may miss key intervention opportunities. At Positive Steps Physiotherapy we wanted to make sure we were able to evaluate all their abilities and provide the best possible rehabilitation to ensure they meet their FULL potential.

The Challenge is a validated outcome measure that is fun to use for both us and the children. We can't wait to become fully validated and gain our certification, it's on our priority list of 'Things To Do'!
We'll keep you posted!

Although Physio is very tiring I do feel a lot better afterwards and it helps to have a Physio that I can have a laugh with and that I can talk to. I feel it is very beneficial.

From A.D

Lorna makes the hard work of Physio fun. She has children of her own and relates well to my 7 year old boy. He has made good progress since she started working with him.

From R.G

Thank you Lorna, I cannot recommend Positive Steps Physiotherapy highly enough to support anyone needing specialist physiotherapy help.

From R.C

Lorna has been my son's Physio for over 3 years. He has a complex medical history and I can not underestimate the impact that Lorna has had on his life and ours as a family.

From V.F

Lorna has been my Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist for a few years now. Her cheerful encouragement plus broad knowledge and experience helps me to make, 'positive steps,' on my own every day.
