Play and develop skills in a fun and online environment

The Little Movers online group is 6-week physiotherapy-based program designed to meet the needs of children between 0-2yrs with or at risk of cerebral palsy, whose movement skills are delayed.

The live online group will provide a socially interactive environment in which songs and play will provide the motivation to assist young children to learn to move. The physiotherapist running the group will guide and prompt parents in assisting their child to gain body and postural awareness and optimal ways to assist transitional movement patterns.

The group will run for 1hr weekly for 6 weeks. As part of the program, each client will be sent a fun therapy toy resource pack to keep, and parents will be shown fun and creative ways to use the resources in order to engage and progress the motor developmental and stimulate neuroplasticity with their little movers.

 

What does this program involve?

  • Gross motor skills e.g. Rolling, sitting, tummy time, crawling, pulling to stand
  • Motivated and stimulated through music, singing and play
  • Parent/Carer training to promote movement

What are the expected outcomes?

  • Opportunity for parents to engage socially with other parents  
  • Provision of therapist report of participation and progress made over the course of the program to be made available to funding body, local therapy team and parents/carers
