Playskill provides free expert support from Paediatric Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists for pre-school children from 10 months to five years who have physical delays or disabilities. Each group session uses play as a tool for development - while the children are having fun, they are also learning to stand, eat, communicate and walk.
The Charity also provides respite events which accommodate the whole family, alongside essential training and advice for parents, enabling them to practice the therapies at home, and supporting as they navigate NHS & education services.
These services are not available via the NHS in this holistic setting. Playskill relies on grants and donations in order to keep our valuable and much needed services running.
We are based in Watford and Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, and welcome interest from all local areas, including Three Rivers, Dacorum, St. Albans and Bushey.
Playskill was founded in 2006 by Paediatric Physiotherapist Andrea Clarke MB
