How does it work?
Your child’s care begins with a thorough evaluation by one of our physiotherapists with an expertise in paediatric physiotherapy. This could be in our clinic, your home, or via Tele-Rehab, depending on the nature of your child’s needs.
The initial assessment session usually lasts one hour and aims to develop a comprehensive understanding of your child’s health. Your therapist will ask questions about your child’s medical history and their functional needs. Additionally, your therapist will perform a variety of physical evaluations relevant to your child’s condition.
You, your child, and the therapist will then collaboratively outline treatment goals. Your therapist will create a personalized plan for your child, and can answer any questions you may have. Details as to the nature of treatment, times, and location will all be discussed.
What’s my role?
Parents/guardians are essential to a child’s physiotherapy progress. This includes discussing goals of treatment and assisting younger clients with exercise programs.
As a parent/guardian, you may be asked to do the following:
- Monitor your child’s progress according to a variety of metrics and outcome measures
- Help your child perform at-home assigned exercises, depending on your child’s age and functional needs
- Encourage and remind your child to follow their treatment program
Your therapist will always be pleased to answer any questions about your child’s treatment plan or progress.
