Parents Guides


For many parents and carers, having clear, reliable and practical information about their child’s condition plays a big part in reducing stress levels and improving the outcome for all concerned. Whether you want to know more details about your child’s condition or need advice caring for a child undergoing treatment, you can download any of our guides and fact sheets below or watch some of our films here.

In addition, many of our videos are now freely available on our Steps YouTube Channel.

All of our publications have been medically checked by experienced orthopaedic consultants and externally reviewed by parents and carers.  We are also delighted that several of our booklets have also been commended with a BMA patient information award.

We know this can be a confusing time – so, if you’re having trouble downloading the publications or can’t find the information you are looking for, please do get in touch by calling our helpline on 01925 750271 or message us.

Many of our guides and films are also available in print and on DVD.  They’re free and we don’t charge for delivery!*

* A small delivery charge to cover postage may apply to hospitals that request bulk supplies of our publications.
