When can you use the NDT approach?

Therapists' trained in NDT believe that early treatment is preferable and leads to the best therapeutic outcome. Once a neuro-motor condition (either acquired or congenital) is identified, goals are established by the individual, family, therapists and other members of the management team.

How does therapist become trained?

Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists and Medical Practitioners become trained by successfully completing a comprehensive didactic course with supervised clinical treatment.

The Australian Bobath Neurodevelopmental Therapy Association offers a pediatric course in the NDT management of children with cerebral palsy and allied conditions over 8 weeks (360 hours).
