Physiotherapy is aimed at helping learners to achieve their maximum functional ability and independence in their environments by working on areas such as muscle strength, endurance, range of motion and motor skills.
Physiotherapy also encompasses the management of a variety of respiratory conditions.
Physiotherapists are instrumental in identifying and sourcing of appropriate assistive devices and equipment such as orthotics, prosthetics, walking aids and wheelchairs, in order to facilitate learner’s independence.
All physiotherapists at the school are BLS (Basic Life Support) accredited.
We are also in close partnership with Jumping Kids, an NGO that is proactive in assisting all our amputee learners with their prosthetic needs for the duration of their schooling career.
All physio’s are involved in a variety of sport for learners with physical disabilities, up to National and International level.
The physiotherapists at Hope School aim to offer consistent support and make necessary adjustments to promote growth and development in our learners.
