This 2 or 3 day beginner level course will focus on introducing pediatric PTs, OTs, and SLPs to NDT (Neurodevelopmental Treatment) handling techniques for the pediatric client with neuromotor challenges. Information presented will address current NDT principles including beginning assessment/evaluation and problem-solving handling techniques. Participants will be assisted to improve their observational skills and direct handling skills while problem solving using NDT techniques to improve function for their pediatric clients.

Both didactic lecture and hands-on labs will be presented throughout this course. Therefore, it is recommended that participants bring comfortable clothing for treatment labs. In addition to didactic information, direct handling with lab partners using problem-solving will enhance learning. Discussion will be included addressing current trends in pediatrics.

Equipment: It is recommended for each participant to bring a doll 18-24 inches long with movement available at shoulders and hips. These dolls will be utilized during labs in addition to lab partners in order to practice techniques. Dolls are also helpful for home programming and parent training.
