Therapy Links - April 2020

Hi everyone,

Hope you are keeping safe and well at home. We miss all of your children’s little faces!

We want to help you at home as much as we can. We have already been speaking to lots of you individually by phone and have sent out individually tailored resources to those who have asked.

We have now also pulled together some useful links and videos that you might find useful.
