All our classes are fully inclusive for children, young people and adults with a physical and/or learning disability. However, for those with profound disabilities who would benefit from a 1-1 session, we are able to offer Rebound Therapy sessions. If you are unsure whether this would be beneficial, we offer a 10min assessment for £10.00.
