Our new service, Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration support children to overcome barriers that prevent them from doing the activities (occupations) that matter to them and make up everyday life. This includes feeding, play and dressing, attending nursery or school.  Assessments and sessions are individually tailored to engage, motivate and support children who have physical, sensory, or cognitive problems.

Occupational Therapy at CPotential provides support to babies, children, and young people of all ages (0-18 years) with a primary diagnosis of a movement disorder, due to conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, global development delay or other neurological disorders. Many developmental conditions can exist together so if you are uncertain if we can help you or your child, please do still get in touch.

We are pleased to offer an introductory offer which includes a free assessment and 25% off* each session.

Funded Wellbeing Courses for parents

30 June 2021

Mother and child cuddling - parent wellbeing

National Lottery Awards for All logoNational Lottery Awards for All have awarded the charity a grant to provide free wellbeing courses to parents of children and young people with movement disorders.

According to the mental health charity Mind, more than half of all adults have said their mental health has got worse during lockdown.

At CPotential, we’ve seen first-hand how many families have struggles. The charity already works to provide support for parents and carers wherever possible and this funding will now enable our team to go one step further with specialist courses.

Having a child with special needs and going through the process of finding a diagnosis is no easy experience. Often it causes parents to disconnect from themselves, going into survival mode to focus on their child’s health and support, but if we stay in this place for too long, it can have a huge impact on a person. For many parents and particularly those living with disability, this pandemic has zapped even more energy and caused an increase in anxiety.

Whether it has been taking care of children whilst working, having to manage without usual therapy and support, navigating the effect of isolation on family members or coping with fatigue from the extensive periods of restrictions and lockdown, parents and carers have arguably borne the brunt of some of the most difficult effects of the pandemic.

Brett Parker, CEO at CPotential said: “The timing of this National Lottery funding is poignant, bringing much-needed support to our families living with disability recovering from this pandemic. It has now enabled us to launch the pilot of this vital wellbeing scheme for one year, supporting 18 parents with an assessment and six online sessions tailored to their individual needs”.

To deliver this new support scheme, we’ve partnered with Charlie Lyons, Wellbeing Coach of Connect In. Charlie has over 20 years’ experience working in the field of Conductive Education & special needs education, providing tailor-made courses and coaching programmes for parents whose wellbeing has been affected and who are wishing to grow throughout life and work.

Charlie Lyons of Connect In said “I’m really excited about the funding and working in partnership with CPotential and guiding and supporting their families. My wellbeing courses are designed to bring parents back to themselves, increase their energy and build new coping skills. Because when they are thriving, so is their child.”
