In June 2023, Callum MacKinnon (Founder & Specialist Occupational Therapist) facilitated rebound therapy training with staff from Fairhill Lifestyles in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire.

This came after management staff from South Lanarkshire Leisure (SLL) agreed to begin offering their own rebound therapy sessions to individuals and families in their local community.

Rebound Therapy sessions – bounceOT & PAMIS

The training included SLL staff accessing bounceOT’s online learning platform, covering some ‘theory’ about play/ purposeful play/ the ‘just right’ challenge…

After this, it was an afternoon of practical – both on the trampoline & using the hoist (on each other!).

Finally, the team being trained were joined by 2 adults with learning disabilities who wanted the staff to lead their rebound therapy session (supervised by Callum as the trainer & Specialist Occupational Therapist).

bounceOT and SLL will continue working together to make sure all barriers to delivering more, inclusive, rebound therapy sessions in Hamilton are removed!
