Online Therapy Assistants Course
1 Day practical
Course prince: £250
This course provides an overview of what Cerebral Palsy is and how we approach treatment using the Bobath concept. We take a practical approach, looking at how the child performs their daily activities (walks, moves on the floor, talks, plays etc.) We discover what happens to their body as they do this and learn why they cannot do certain activities. You will hear lectures from a speech and language therapist who will invite you to think about play and about communication and how you can help children with Cerebral Palsy who may have difficulties in these areas.
