The 1st  M.A.E.S. Therapy Course in Romania was fully booked and there was a great mix of experienced paediatric Physiotherapists and a Paediatrician, who have come away from this exciting and pioneering Neurodevelopmental course with new knowledge and clinical skills to improve the treatment of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and similar neurodevelopmental conditions and also how to engage parents with this during day to day living.

Set in Transylvania in rural Romania, this 4-Week M.A.E.S. Course was organised and made possible by Enikő  Sogor, President Prosperitas Vitae Association, and with supportive funding from the Ministry of Human Capacities (Emberi Erőforrások Minisztériuma).
