There’s no doubt that there’s lots of fun to be had with Playpak! But as Flying Start’s Physiotherapist Nick Mant, showed us through his fantastic series of blogs and webinars, the Playpak also supports physical development.

With the correct use, Playpak helps babies and young children to achieve good lying, sitting and kneeling positions as well as the transitions in between, complementing physical therapy. 

Now Firefly’s clever team of clinicians and experts have decided that they want to show you how much more it can really do, and have created something pretty special:  A FREE Playpak Therapy Programme.

Clare Canale, Occupational Therapist and Clinical Manager at Firefly said: "The Playpak Therapy Programme really is a fantastic resource helping parents make physical development activities with their child a part of day to day life. 

"Parents can work with their child’s therapist to identify Playpak activities that work best with the child’s current therapy programme. 

"I think parents will also be delighted to learn that as well as physical development, the programme is also designed to help with communication and sensory skills."

This downloadable guide helps parents and therapists choose activities, set goals and map developmental progress of children using Playpak.

It guides Playpak users through a series of Mobility, Ability and Participation goals and activities, explaining how each one can be used to develop the earliest of skills, from lying to being on all fours. Each activity is carefully mapped and selected by our expert team, who modelled the Programme on the World Health Organisation's ICF-CY framework. That means users can rely on the very best tips, advice and guidance from leading specialists.

The Playpak Therapy Programme is free for everyone to download and a hard copy will soon come free with every Playpak purchase - Download your free Playpak Therapy Programme!
