Founded in 1988 by Mrs Jennifer Bryce MBE FCSP, the British Association of Bobath Trained Therapists (BABTT) is a study group open to individuals who have completed an 8-week basic paediatric Bobath course. This training is uniquely interdisciplinary bringing together speech, occupational and physiotherapists, as well as doctors who have a special interest in cerebral palsy. BABTT actively provides and supports research, education and inter & transdisciplinary teamwork.
Bobath (Neurodevelopmental Therapy) is a post graduate training (provided by the Bobath Centre) in the treatment of children with cerebral palsy and other allied neurological conditions.
The Bobath Concept is an evolving approach to the management and treatment of children and adults with cerebral palsy. It is based on clinical experience and is constantly being developed. New information is integrated from clinical practice, as client’s responses to treatment are evaluated and from theoretical knowledge arising from areas such as motor control, neurophysiology and infant development.
