Intensives for therapists


This initiative offers three to five days of individual, intensive NDTA Contemporary Practice ModelTM treatment to address the functional goals of families & children with cerebral palsy. NDTATM Contemporary Practice Model NDTA North America certified Instructors / certified paediatric therapists will treat three to four children daily during the intensive. Family-selected functional goal related performances will be recorded before and after treatment in video & GAS goals for comparison (Bain 2012).

Daily instruction for therapists at the facility will include an NDT theoretical component with practical NDTATM Contemporary Practice Model ‘lab experiences’. Facility therapists may observe any of the treatment sessions.

On the sixth day, there will be an NDT workshop that will also be open to therapists from outside the participating workplace. This will include:

  1.  In depth examination of the functional goals / NDTATM Contemporary Practice Model treatment strategies utilised & the functional outcomes for the children involved in the Intensive as they relate to the topic: ‘The Evidence Base of NDTATM Contemporary Practice Model?’  
  2. A summary of functional ‘carryover’ opportunities for home, school, preschool etc, as addressed with the participating families and therapists.
