Visiting Neuro Development Therapists are able to show caregivers handling skills to encourage normal development and provide therapy recommendations to promote learning skills and independence in tasks of daily living.
As they visit the child in the home, they will develop a home programme for parents and caregivers to carry out, that maximises everyday opportunities for learning.
