Loan a Wizzybug for FREE

We welcome requests from therapists or families. Please contact our Children’s Occupational Therapy team on 01225 824103, who will help you decide whether the Wizzybug might be beneficial for the child. If it seems likely that the Wizzybug will be appropriate, we will send out a request form to be completed jointly by both the parent and therapist. We will then review your request and source the funding before accepting the child onto the scheme.

When Wizzybug is ready we will contact the family to arrange a convenient appointment which will be carried out at Designability in Bath.  There is an option for a small number of families, who live at a distance, to attend their appointment in Leeds instead (please speak to our Occupational Therapists if this may be helpful for you but we can’t guarantee this) .  Therapists are welcome to attend the appointment. The family will be able to take Wizzybug home with them unless any unforeseen issues arise during the assessment.

The Loan Scheme is now using the COPM outcome measures tool.  For further details please visit the COPM website
