Who we are?

We are an NHS service for children with a physical disability and coordination difficulties which impact on children’s functional difficulties (see below). We operate from the Child Development Centre in Kempston.

What we do?

We assess, advise and treat children where appropriate,  who meet our referral criteria, for a wide range of difficulties such as the following where their skills are not in line with their general development;

• Independence in self-care skills, e.g. eating, dressing and toileting

• Using hands for play

•  Classroom seating at school where additional postural support is required

• Access to the school curriculum e.g. written recording and carrying out

practical lessons
