How your family can help you

Family involvement

Parents and families play a vital role in your physiotherapy programme. Your parents and carers are welcome and are encouraged to attend physiotherapy sessions. This gives them a chance to learn treatment techniques that are appropriate for you. Please ask us questions if you don’t understand something or if your family is having problems with anything in the therapy programme.


We usually give you a home programme, which is updated regularly. This is an important part of your treatment.

Learning for life

Goals are set jointly with families so that therapy becomes part of your everyday life. For most people, therapy continues into adult life. It is important that you learn how to incorporate treatment into your daily routine.
