An Introduction to Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT)
This one-day virtual workshop will introduce health care professionals to the current theoretical foundations of NDT and its application in clinical practice to promote recovery in adults with neurological impairments. This workshop will focus on the importance of engaging the individual in a task, the role of the “set-up”, and use of handling maximize recovery. There will be opportunities to analyze movement in order to help identify impairments in our clients/patients. Some basic handling will be introduced. The workshop will provide participants with additional skills to enhance consistency in patient care and contribute to the overall team rehabilitation efforts of achieving functional outcomes for patients.
The workshop will contain didactic information, problem solving sessions, detailed lab information with handouts, and videos to watch. The session will have live, virtual interaction with the instructor throughout the workshop. There is also an optional lab component for those individuals who would like time to practice the labs and receive live virtual feedback from the instructor. Individuals who register for this component will need to have a colleague, family member or friend who are available for the lab practice.
Upon completion of the workshop the participants will:
- Gain knowledge of the current literature and how we use this information within the NDT Practice Model in treating the individual with neurological impairments.
- Identify major impairments interfering with function in the adult with stroke, brain injury and other neuromotor disorders such as incomplete spinal cord injury.
- Explore treatment strategies to address impairments within functional activities including activities in sitting, standing and for gait.
