Motorvate Therapies offer the following group sessions at their Perth premises.

Sports Therapy Groups 

Young people will take part in a range of fun games and activities specifically designed to help build their self-confidence and skill base. The activities are designed to provide challenge and most importantly the opportunity to succeed, co-operate and where appropriate, compete with the other children in the group.

  • Thursdays 4.15 – 5.00pm 

This Group is for young people with a diagnosed difficulty who will benefit from structured confidence-building activities.

  • Thursdays 5.00 – 5.45pm 

For young people who may or may not have a diagnosed difficulty but who are more confident and are able to enjoy more challenging physical movement activities.

Literacy and Learning Groups

For young people who have difficulty with literacy skills which result in reading, spelling and/or dyslexic-type difficulties.  A focus is placed on developing an understanding of personal learning and the skills needed to become successful learners.

  • Thursdays 4.15 – 5.00pm 
  • Thursdays 5.00 – 5.45pm 

Handwriting Groups

Handwriting is not just about using the pencil!  The sessions are sensory based and provide the young people with the pre-requisite skills for writing:

  • Balance/crossing the midline
  • Fine motor skills
  • Pencil grip.

Age 5-8 years: Wednesdays 4.15 - 5.00pm 

Age 8+ years: Wednesdays 5.00 - 5.45pm 

Drums Alive

This group offers young people the chance to drum to music on therapy balls.  This enhances their co-ordination across the midline of their body, an essential skill for reading and writing. It is also great fun!

Age 7+ years: Wednesdays 6.00 - 6.45pm. 

Social Skills Group

This group is for young people between the ages of 8 -11 years who have difficulties with social skills and making and keeping friendships.

Age 8-11 years: Tuesdays 4.45 - 5.30pm.


When Groups are running, Parents are invited to stay and chat in the comfortable waiting room where they have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with other parents of children with needs similar to their own. This provides a forum for mutual support.

Criteria for Groups

  • Whether a young person has a diagnosis or not
  • Whether they will fit in to the social / skill base mix of the group
  • The  stage of learning and development of the young person
  • Up to 8 children in the Sports Therapy groups
  • Up to 6-8 children in Drums Alive
  • Up to 6-8 children in the Handwriting groups.
  • Up to 5 children in the Literacy groups
  • Up to 6 children in the Social Skills Group.

All groups are about having fun and addressing any developmental, motor or social skills based issue through involvement in fun games, motor skills activities and co-operative learning.

Young people may be encouraged to join one of the groups following a block of individual therapy to allow them to consolidate their skills in a supported setting.

Some children come in to a group for only a short time but we have a number who have been attending for several years and continue to make measurable progress.

The groups cost £8 per session payable by block in advance. Discounts are available for two or more siblings.
