Activity Sessions for Dyspraxic Children

A grant of £2,000 from Liverpool Primary Care Trust means that Greenbank can offer activity sessions for Dyspraxic children (Dyspraxia is a disability that affects movement and co-ordination).

The 10 week programme started on 2 March and takes place on Fridays from 5 – 6pm. Session leaders set the children a series of challenges that build and develop balance, co-ordination and agility.

The programme is led by Pete Wyman, Sport Development Officer at the Academy and supported by Greenbank Foundation Degree students in partnership with Liverpool Physiotherapy Service. All the staff involved completed the FUNS for everyone course at the Academy, to develop their understanding of physical challenges that can develop movement and co-ordination skills.
