The young people have access to a multi disciplinary therapy team, compromising of speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. Hannah Avenue provides 24 hour care and nursing under the clinical care and guidance of the local general practice and NHS Paediatric Consultants. The level of care is based on an individual needs assessment, although many of our children require 1:1 support.
We work in partnership with each child, young person, parents, families , social workers and other professionals to ensure a personalised approach and to enhance individuals levels of self esteem by creating and maximising safe opportunities to develop, learn and realise their potential.
We strive to give the young people every opportunity possible. Due to our location we have regular visits to local amenities such as the beach and woodlands walks, theatre trips, shopping centres and adventure parks. Children and young people are given the opportunity to attend the local children’s service at church consisting of a live band and other cultural activities they may choose. We are fortunate to have many in house facilities too, such as a sensory room, hydrotherapy pool, rebound (trampoline) and an activity hall. Children and young people have the opportunity to choose what activity they would like to take part in. We also offer lots of sensory activities such as messy play, cooking, talking books, pamper sessions, music and videos to meet every need.
