Physical Wellbeing

Children with brain conditions often have extra needs when it comes to their physical wellbeing. Our guides and resources offer support and advice for various physical issues you and your child may be facing.

Two common physical wellbeing challenges children with complex needs and their families face are dealing with sleep issues and how to identify and manage pain in a child who can’t communicate. Our comprehensive guides outline common problems and offer strategies to help.


We know that if one child isn’t sleeping, the whole family suffers. Alongside our Sleep Guide, we offer a range of services including workshops and one-to-one support from our sleep team to help your child – and everyone in your family – get a good night’s sleep.

Some behaviours can be challenging for parents and carers as well as teachers and other professionals. Our factsheet helps you recognise and understand different types of challenging behaviour in order to manage them.

Children with brain conditions may have difficulties organising and responding to sensory input. We have a selection of toys in our library suitable for children with different sensory needs.
