Summary

Chatting Independently is a residential rehabilitation centre for young adults who have cerebral palsy. They receive neuro physio, hydrotherapy, and other therapies for communication.

However, the key to being able to live independently is good postural management. By combining regular neuro dryland physio and hydrotherapy and good posture management, our residents sit comfortably and maintain their body position in appropriate seating systems. This allows them to begin to consider living independently.
