Families attend a one-day initial assessment or reassessment and during that time, you will get to know them well, finding out what matters to them. Having the time to talk through the programme with families is invaluable, as you can not only demonstrate and teach them, but discuss the rationale behind why you have suggested them.
Our multi-disciplinary team predominantly work with children from birth to 12 years with a range of conditions and diagnoses including: cerebral palsy, developmental delay, autism, brain Injury, Down’s syndrome, plus other genetic conditions, and children with no formal diagnosis.
Claire, a Speech and Language Therapist describes working at Brainwave:
“I had fallen out of love with speech and language therapy and was on the verge of leaving the profession. Brainwave has given me back my passion for SLT. I truly love working here, what we do is brilliant, and I feel that I really make a difference to the lives of children and their families. Moving to a charity has given me and my family a better quality of life.”
Laura, mum to Clark who follows a Brainwave Programme says: “Brainwave has changed my life. Our son’s life, our family’s life, and the way we see our once bleak, now bright future. They have helped us achieve what we feared impossible. Clark’s world has now opened up and continues to grow.’’
