Training and Teaching

Training for families, care teams and schools 

We offer training and teaching packages in all areas of our specialist practice: aquatic therapy (hydrotherapy), 24-hour postural management and support of therapeutic programs. We can offer these as packages or bespoke programs of training to families, nurseries, schools, residential units or care teams.

Training

Aquatic therapy training

Aquatic therapy is a treatment that can release movement and functional potential, it is particularly beneficial to children with a complex physical disability or as part of a 24-hour postural regime. We are able to demonstrate and devise simple programs that are safe and can be carried out by a carer/care team.

We are able to offer:

1:1 Training

1: 1 sessions with clients and/or a carer to prescribe and support the implementation of a water program. Sessions include health screening, a written program with digital images if appropriate.

3:1 Training

3:1 sessions with carers/clients to prescribe and support the implementation of a group water program. Sessions include health screening, a written program with digital images if appropriate.

Half day ‘water skills’ workshops

Full day workshops
