Basic Bobath Foundation Course (Autumn Split 2019)
Participants will gain a comprehensive insight into the Bobath approach and advance their clinical assessment and treatment skills with children with cerebral palsy through interactive sessions held over eight weeks that will deepen knowledge of neuroscience, child development, classification, problem solving and communication whilst enhancing and developing hands-on skills. 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.
Early Assessment and Intervention with Babies and Young Children
This course is suitable for all those therapists working in early neurodevelopment, ie physiotherapists, occuapational therapists and speech and language therapists (Bobath and non-Bobath trained) and paediatricians/neonatologists who are working with babies and young children who present with motor concerns. The course will introduce participants to the role of the neurodevelopmental therapist in assessment and intervention using Bobath concepts and the EI SMART approach, both in NICU with preterm infants and with high risk infants in the first year of life.
