The Bobath Centre is a specialist centre for children and adults with neurological disability which has gained national and international recognition for its therapy services and achievement.
The centre offers a highly skilled team of Bobath therapists who specialise in the treatment of children with cerebral palsy, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.
A large number of Penningtons clients have attended either the Bobath Centre or received therapy from a trained Bobath therapist and the benefits have been impressive, not only for the child but also for their family and carers.
The inclusive nature of the Bobath approach ensures that everyone has the opportunity to understand the therapy program and participate in helping those with cerebral palsy improve their skills and independence. There is a real focus on educating parents, in particular on how to provide therapy effectively at home, meaning that the benefit of the centre continues indefinitely.
Many parents have commented on how impressed they have been in terms of how much progress their children have made and how supported they have felt.
