Neuro-Developmental Treatment Certification
Neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT) is a hands-on treatment approach used by occupational therapists to improve function and control of movements as a result of neurotological challenges as in cerebral palsy, stoke or head injury. NDT trained therapists believe that due to the central nervous system impairment, atypical posture and movement patterns are used by the child for function. Unfortunately, it is the use of these patterns that lead to secondary impairments and dysfunction. NDT trained therapists use clinical thinking to evaluate a person’s movement in order to determine the focus of the therapy sessions. Therapeutic handling is used to assist in the facilitation of typical movement.
