Celebrating International Day of People with Disability!
We are thrilled to be able to celebrate on this important day
The theme for the 2017 International Day of People with Disability is "Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all”, to "leave no one behind" and "empower people with disability to be active contributors of society".
This links in beautifully with Splash Physiotherapy's core purpose to "help babies and children to learn day to day functional activitiesso they can participate in life at home, school, and in the community."
We are looking forward to celebrating with you!
