Abstract

Parents and school staff lack knowledge and confidence when providing postural care to physically disabled children. This can act as a barrier to the successful implementation of therapy. To address this problem, a novel training programme was developed to improve knowledge and confidence in providing postural care and evaluate the impact of the training programme in parents and school staff.
