NEURO-DEVELOPMENT TREATMENT (NDT) also known as BOBATH Therapy¬†is an advanced ‘hands-on’ therapeutic approach used for rehabilitation of children and individuals with neurological pathophysiology. Using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) model, the therapist applies a problem-solving approach to assess activity and participation as a basis for the establishment of achievable outcomes with clients and caregivers. An in-depth understanding of typical and atypical development forms the basis for examination, evaluation, and intervention. Therapeutic handling, used during evaluation and intervention, consists of a dynamic reciprocal interaction between the client and therapist for activation of optimal sensorimotor processing, task performance, and skill acquisition for achievement of participation in meaningful activities.

Our overriding goal is to facilitate improved functional outcomes for children who have developmental disabilities. We promote fun in therapy and a holistic, family-centred approach to therapy.ndtndt 2
