Bobath Scotland

Bobath Scotland exists to improve the quality of life for people with cerebral palsy. We provide specialist therapy from our Glasgow-based therapy centre, offer specialist knowledge, training and support.

Did you know...

Over 100 people, from throughout Scotland, are helped by Bobath therapy each year. Bobath therapists, patients, carers, and their external support network all work together to help achieve defined goals during the therapy block. A key element of Bobath therapy is to train the parents, carers and family in therapy techniques that they can easily build into their everyday routine. As a result we are indirectly helping an estimated 400 carers each year.

What makes Bobath Scotland different

We are the only charity dedicated to helping anyone living with cerebral palsy in Scotland. The Bobath concept recognises and provides a unique understanding of the many systems that influence abnormal tone, such as vision, hypersensitivity to touch, and ability to move through space. It examines how abnormal tone affects the building blocks necessary for movement, exploring ways of encouraging more natural movement patterns that can be integrated into everyday life.

With improvements to posture and movement a person may gain greater control of hand and eye movements. Even for the most severely impaired child this opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
