Brainwave is a charity that exists to help children with disabilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence by aiming to improve mobility, communication skills and learning potential through a range of educational and physical therapies, and the children we work with have a range of conditions including: autism, brain injuries such as cerebral palsy and genetic disorders such as Down’s syndrome.

Our therapists, who are drawn from the mainstream fields of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and educational therapy, work with the family to devise a unique programme, specifically designed to suit their child’s needs, which will help and encourage them to unlock their child’s potential.  This may be anything from helping them walk or ride a bike, to recognising colours or writing their name.  Our therapists have a wide range of experience and will use these skills to assess the needs of your child. 

Brainwave has such a positive influence on not only Alex but also the family and her school life. Brainwave has become part of our extended family and Alex always looks forward to her assessments with Becky.  I was showing a mum the first video of Alex at her Brainwave assessment. She is so very different (calmer, happier, more focused AND winning awards in mainstream school) – it was really very emotional and we sat and cried!
