It is an intense course presented at post-graduate level.

The Aims of this course are:

  • Increase understanding of the key reasons for functional limitations, based upon an in-depth analysis of the neurodevelopmental movement disorders seen in clients with Cerebral Palsy and similar neuromotor conditions.
  • For therapists to develop high-level clinical reasoning skills to guide their approach and provide each client with specific sensory-motor experiences to make best use of their own potential for improvement.
  • Expand creative thinking and develop a wider repertoire of treatment strategies and skills, which can then be applied more confidently in a range of situations, to provide a bespoke expert ‘hands-on’ treatment for each client with Cerebral Palsy or similar neurological condition.
