  • Need

    Need

    Children with neurological disabilities do not have functional skills or mobility for independence.

    Solution

    Conductive education ensures children and their carers gain skills so that the children can learn to sit, toilet, crawl, step, crouch and move around independently. This takes a long process of constant practice. The summer activities refines these skills so over the two weeks the practice becomes everyday, which means the likelihood of it being continued in the home is increased.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To develop children and young peoples self care and physical and social independence.

    Activities

    » Conductive education every day for 2 weeks for 3 different age groups.

    the teachers, children, young people and parents will start of with some aims at the beginning of the two weeks and at the end record progress


  • Impact

    Impact

    If practised these changes are life long. We have case studies where childrens first sitting or first steps were achieved through the camps. We will provide case studies and video diaries.

    Risk

    Lack of funding... mean we will shorten the camp to a week having less impact.

    Reporting

    We can invite them to see the summer camp, provide them with case studies and videos
