Basic Bobath Foundation Course (Autumn Split 2019)

This is a fundamental course for therapists working with children with cerebral palsy who strive for the very best standards of treatment and management in their day to day work. THIS IS A SPLIT COURSE, RUNNING IN TWO BLOCKS - WEEKS 1-5 FROM 14.10.19 TO 15.11.19 AND WEEKS 6-8 FROM 13.01.19 TO 31.01.20.
Therapy Assistants Course
This two day course will introduce assistants to the Bobath approach and enable them to develop their skills and work more effectively with children with cerebral palsy. Participants will gain insight into the different presentations, how function may be affected, learn some principles of treatment and see how Bobath therapists apply their skills to activities such as play and communication through observation of demonstrations and discussion.
