Information For New Families
If you are interested in arranging for your child to attend Stick 'n' Step sessions, then please complete the form below to begin your enquiry
Early intervention is critical for children with neurological conditions. We encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as your child receives a specific diagnosis OR when you become concerned about their physical development, e.g. not reaching expected milestones. The conditions we work with are caused by brain damage or maldevelopment occurring before, around or soon after a baby’s birth. The first few months and years of a child’s life is therefore the most sensitive time where the most progress can be achieved. This is not to say that children can’t learn new skills and achieve important milestones later in life, but the sooner we can start working with them the better.
Please note that we only accept new applications for children up to the age of 11 years. If you are offered a place it may be at either of our centres. We will always try to accommodate your choice of centre wherever we can, but this is not always possible.
If you have any questions or you need any help with this form, please give us a call on 0151 638 0888.
What happens next?
Once we receive your form, this is what will happen next:
- We will be in touch either by telephone or email and we will ask you to complete an in-depth application form. This helps us to establish whether your child could benefit from the work that we do here at Stick 'n' Step.
- If we think we can help your child then we will be in touch again to arrange an Initial Consultation. This is an opportunity for our professional team to understand more about your family circumstances and your child's needs, and it's a great opportunity for you and your child to ask lots of questions about what we do at Stick 'n' Step.
- If we can offer you a place then you will normally join our waiting list. Unfortunately, due to demand for our services, you can sometimes be on this list for several months.
- As soon as a space becomes available in a suitable class, we will let you know, and your child will be able to start to attend sessions at Stick 'n' Step.
