For over 35 years Brainwave has been helping children with disabilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence.

The Charity see children with a whole range of issues including brain injuries, such as cerebral palsy, and genetic conditions e.g. Down’s syndrome; developmental delay and autism. Families are invited to one of the Centres or clinics, where each child is assessed and a Programme of exercises is designed by the therapy team, according to the child’s individual needs.

Parents and carers are shown how to carry out the Programme so that they can undertake them at home and work towards achieving the child’s goals. This could be anything from feeding themselves or walking to recognising numbers or forming sentences.

Significant numbers of children now lead more independent lives as a result of the successful partnership between Brainwave’s therapy team and the children’s dedicated parents and carers, who embrace the home-based Programme. 

The Charity relies totally on voluntary donations from the public, companies and trusts, together with contributions from families, carers and other service users, to fund its work. No monies are received from the NHS or other statutory bodies.
