New hydrotherapy pool improving quality of life for pupils with complex needs
Thursday, 23 February 2017
RNIB has officially opened the new hydrotherapy pool at the Pears Centre for Specialist Learning in Coventry.
The new hydrotherapy pool will improve the quality of life and learning experiences of the school’s pupils, all of whom are blind or partially sighted with complex needs.
Ginny Tyler, Head of RNIB’s Children’s health and care Services, said: “Until now, our pupils had to travel off-site to enjoy hydrotherapy sessions to support their wellbeing. We’re delighted that now we have our very own state of the art facilities and look forward to seeing the positive impact on the children and young people in our care.”
