Tiny Tim’s is a registered charity which provides FREE complementary treatments to children and young people with disabilities, health problems and special needs. They are based in the centre of Coventry and are currently offering treatments to families where treatment is either not available or limited to them on the NHS or is not affordable to the family from the private sector.
The object of the charity is to provide as many free treatments to all children who need them. The charity has continuously provided therapy free of charge to children with disabilities and special needs since 1997.
The centre treats children with disabilities and special needs from babies to 18 years of age. Although the centre is based in Coventry, they will treat any child with a need, no matter where they come from, as long as they can get to the centre. Patients do not have to be referred by healthcare professionals; they can telephone and speak to a therapist who will book them in for an initial assessment. They work alongside other local services to ensure a co-ordinated and seamless approach to the provision of services to these ‘most in need’ children.
The centre will see children with a wide range of conditions including Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Downs syndrome, Autism and the autistic related disorders, Epilepsy, Juvenile Arthritis, Hydrocephalus, Dyspraxia, Asthma, Soft tissue abnormality, Skeletal deformity, Chromosomal disorders, Sensory impairment, Behavioural and Social problems. In addition, they can also provide palliative help for children who are terminally ill and assist with secondary problems such as joint stiffness, impaired mobility, poor muscle tone, lymphatic and circulation problems, developmental delay, sleep problems, stress, constipation, and psychosocial problems.
