Course Aims: 

To introduce participants to:

  • An understanding of why missing specific components of coordination have long-term consequences on the ability to participate in activities of everyday life (including mobility, self-care, play and communication).
  • Appreciate the necessity of providing the child with a different path for development by acting upon the process of development, rather than the obvious symptoms
  • The MAES Therapy framework: a specific framework for identifying the relationship between skills and tasks and its relevance in understanding the reasons for atypical patterns of coordination for each child with Cerebral Palsy.
  • Understand the application of the MAES Therapy framework to develop individualised treatment strategies for each child.
  • Understand the need for therapists to develop a wide repertoire of strategies to enable the child to learn new ways that he would have difficulty with, or would not be able to develop on his own.
