We provide guidance and training for parents and families to create positive change in their children’ and in their adult relatives’ lives.
Our work is based on the Pető System and 37 years of experience, personal and team research. Parents and families are the most valuable and amazing resources.
Maybe you are tired and frustrated because you don’t know what to do and you are looking for more meaningful and practical ideas and strategies to help your loved ones?
Parents know their children better than anyone else and all family members can have a powerful and positive influence on their loved ones because of their emotional connections.
We believe that all families must be given the tools they need, to provide the best for their loved ones in the case of children an adequate system of upbringing, in the case of adults an adequate lifestyle that facilitates, maintains and ensures the best possible health, wellness, physical, emotional, psychological growths and development.
We will guide you every step of the way. These sessions can be individually tailored for children, for adults and for family members and for carers. Sessions include, observation, training, assessments and hands on training.
The sessions can also be in a form of general information and training for groups. “Many things can wait; the child cannot. Now is the time his bones are being formed, his mind is being developed. To him, we cannot say tomorrow; his name is today.” Mistral (1889 – 1957)

SDR Rehabilitation Services
We provide dynamic and fun programmes which target and strengthen the exact areas that children with post SDR may need to work on as well as their overall development.
This leads to improved:
- walking technique
- life enhancing skills.
Our expertise and training, which stems from the roots of the Pető System, is in providing comprehensive programmes for children with cerebral palsy. Understanding the very nature of how children with cerebral palsy can learn to develop their skills has enabled us to have a head start in providing programmes of an outstanding level.
Since the SDR surgery became popular several years ago, we have had an increased number of families approaching us to help their children following the SDR surgery. Over time, we have adapted, developed and fine-tuned our programmes to specifically cater for children after the surgery.
Our services are run by fully qualified, senior professionals in neuro-rehabilitation.
Following your child’s SDR, we will design a programme which will specifically target the areas which need to be developed, strengthened and improved.
All of our programmes (pre and post operative) work in a holistic manner (i.e. taking into consideration the whole body, the mind and personality of the child).
The Post-operative programmes will begin to build your child’s confidence as they learn to organise their bodies after the changes brought about by the surgery. Posture, balance, flexibility, co-ordination, changing position and place, stepping up and down, self-care and independence are all included as part of the fun classes.
Our pre-operative programmes enable students to have an advantage by boosting their general health, strengths, stamina, increased range of movements, independent standing, balancing and walking etc. thus laying the foundations for overall learning and pre-paving the road to independence.
We achieve this by engaging the children into a dynamic active programme following a holistic structured series of tasks all of which are fundamentally based upon the roots of the Pető System. In simple terms, the programmes give the children a whole body work out, loosening and strengthening muscles and on a practical level- improving coordination, balance, weight transference skills, hand function and confidence.
By the very nature of the movements practiced, it has a direct influence on general health and well being – Breathing technique, improved digestion, healthier sleeping patterns, positive mental attitude and reducing stress which in turn improves adaptability and social skills.
We have been providing worldwide consulting services for individuals, families, physio therapist, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, teachers, special needs teachers, rehabilitation practices, schools, projects, societies both in the private, state and 3rd sectors since 1988.
