The Transition Therapy Team is part of the Solent Neurological Rehabilitation Service which is part of Solent NHS Trust.
We offer occupational therapy and physiotherapy input to young people, between the ages of 14 and 25, who have complex physical disabilities. These disabilities are predominantly neurological and some young people also have learning disabilities.
What do we do?
After an initial assessment we offer specific interventions to young people and review what we are doing at agreed intervals.
Skill development: We work alongside young people and their family or carers to support growing independence. We help young people to feel more able to take the lead in their healthcare.
Active therapy intervention: We address specific therapy needs.
Vocational navigation: We support young people to develop the skills they may need in order to be able to work. We link them with other agencies to help find opportunities for education and paid or unpaid work.
Equipment advice/provision: We address issues to do with specialist equipment.
Advice and support: We recognise that growing independence for a young person also involves providing support to families and carers.
Looking ahead: We support young people to look ahead and develop aspirations for the future.
We help young people and their carers to carry out day-by-day therapy, as well as discussing exercise opportunities in the community.
Young people can contact us if new issues arise, or if there are changes in their health needs. If we can’t help, we will try and signpost to someone who can. We will also signpost young people to other services they can access.
