Physiotherapy

Who Are We?

We are a team of Physiotherapists and therapy assistants working at the school and are employed by Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Working with us we have Lee Evans and Marta Collardo Garcia (Highly Specialist Physiotherapist), Norma McCulloch (Senior Therapy Assistant), Wendy Russell (Senior Therapy Assistant) and Laura Virtue (Physiotherapy Assistant).

What Do We Do?

Physiotherapy staff are on hand everyday within the school to offer assessment, treatment, advice and support. Within the school we hold weekly hydrotherapy sessions. We also actively encourage 24 hour Postural Management.

The Team Around the Child

Here at the Royal School for the Blind we understand how important it is to work closely with the team that works around the child. This is especially important as children attend our school from various locations across the UK. We work with a variety of different professionals including parents, local physiotherapists, occupational therapists, medical team, speech and language therapists, wheelchair services, orthotics services, classroom staff, mobility officers and school nurses. We strive to work together to enable the best possible care for the child.
