What is Learn to Move Physiotherapy?

The Learn to Move-Paediatric Physiotherapy Practice brings together Pauline's 25 years of experience working as a paediatric physiotherapist and classroom teacher.

Often* children affected with Development of Movement and Coordination Difficulties or Hypermobility are also found to have Learning, Reading, Writing and/or Attention issues. 


There is extensive evidence that the combination of these difficulties can have considerable impact on children's lives as they struggle in school, at sport and at home. Importantly research has also shown that without intervention children will not improve or outgrown their difficulties.
