Physiotherapy

All pupils with a physical difficulty receive physiotherapy at Heol Goffa school. These children are assessed by the physiotherapist and an individual physiotherapy programme is designed and written for each child. These programmes are then carried out on a regular timetabled basis by trained school staff and monitored regularly by the physiotherapist. Physiotherapy programmes may include muscle stretches, activities to improve motor skills and muscle strength and gym programmes.

Pupils will also be assessed  for rebound therapy which is the use of the trampoline to improve muscle tone and strength and improve coordination skills.

Children with very complex physical needs receive weekly hydrotherapy with the physiotherapist at Glangwilli hospital, Carmarthen.
