Neurological Conditions and Autism Spectrum Disorder

Neurological Conditions and Autism Spectrum Disorder in Newcastle

At Kids Physio Newcastle we often assess children with neurological conditions including Cerebral Palsy and Brain Injury. We also see children with autism spectrum disorder. A physio can provide a comprehensive assessment and then provide an individual plan to assist with improving motor skills, muscle strength and flexibility as well as giving advice regarding any equipment that may assist your child in reaching their goals.

We have a special interest in helping children with cerebral palsy, hypermobility, developmental coordination disorder, developmental delay and autism.

The therapy plan may include

Exercise Program
