Gain new insight and understanding about children with CP
M.A.E.S. Therapy is a unique, dynamic and holistic approach which allows for a very specific, individualised approach to therapy. Each child has individual needs, skills, limitations and possibilities and therefore needs a very individual treatment. Rather than just treat the visible symptoms, M.A.E.S. makes you look at it from the perspective of the child and explains why the child moves as he does.
MAES Therapy explores and builds on our current understanding of children with CP.
It utilises specific highly skilled handling techniques, guiding movement, cognition and play in order to take the child on a new path of learning new skills and maximising potential.
Jean-Pierre will present and analyse videos and introduce the M.A.E.S. Therapy Framework and explains therapeutic principles to parents.
