Welcome to our magical ‘Sunshine Movement’ disability classes suitable for children aged 1-18. The classes are designed and run by Beth Darlington who is an HCPC and CSP registered paediatric physiotherapist. She graduated from Cardiff University in 2014 with a BSc in Physiotherapy and has worked with many children with additional needs and in multiple special needs schools across Wales as a paediatric physiotherapist.
It has been a dream of Beth’s to create a class that combines important physiotherapy concepts around postural management and movement with the magical world of music, sensory exploration and storytelling for this cohort of children. Beth has a real passion to ensure our Mini Movement classes are inclusive and accessible to all. She wanted to create a space where families and caregivers of children with physical disabilities could come to bond and connect with their children in a fun and relaxed environment, gain further understanding of their needs, build confidence with manual handling and create precious memories to last a lifetime.
Beth has teamed up with the amazing charity ‘Oshi’s World’ who are a local charity based in the Vale of Glamorgan, inspired by a special little boy called Oshi. Their founders, Oshi’s mum (Anna Liddell) and aunties set out to create an accessible play space for children with disabilities and their families and friends. This wonderful charity is helping to support and fund ‘The Sunshine Movement’ classes.
**Please be aware this class is not ‘physiotherapy’ and the child will not be receiving physiotherapy assessment or treatment during the sessions**
The classes are mostly funded by Oshi’s world but a £20 fee is required for the block of 4 one hour classes.
Classes are on Saturday mornings (every 2-3 weeks) at Ysgol Y Deri special school in Penarth.
The dates of the block will be provided once we’ve received your referral and you will be triaged into the correct block of classes for your child’s needs.
£20 for a block of 4 one hour Sunshine Movement classes.
