Children's therapies

Children's Therapies main imageWelcome to The Pod! Here you will find films, resources and links that can help your child achieve their therapy goals.

We support children and young people to develop their skills to their full potential, so they can participate in everyday activities. We work in partnership with you, your child and any other important people in their life.
