Ellie Barton and Helen King presented our 2-Day Introduction Course last Friday & Saturday at Provide Head Office in Colchester, Essex.

There was a great mix of 27 paediatric therapists ( PT, OT and SLT ) who came with an open mind,  prepared to have their current practice /previous thinking challenged and enjoyed having the opportunity to see and understand CP and movement disorders in a new way. 

At the end of the course 24 of the 27 Participants gave very positive feedback –
WELL DONE  Ellie  and Helen !

A typical response from the Participants:

“I would recommend this course for all paediatric therapists.  Ellie Barton and Helen King were wonderful”


Course Title:

 ‘A better understanding of Children with CP and similar neurodevelopmental conditions and principles to improve their coordination’


Course Presenters:

Ellie Barton MCSP  &  Helen King MCSP
Senior Paediatric Neurodevelopmental Physiotherapists
MAES Trained Therapists

Ellie, assisted by Helen, presented this 2-Day course introducing the approach and principles of M.A.E.S. Therapy (Movement Analysis & Education Strategies)


The course deepened participants’ knowledge of treating children with CP and generated a lot of interest in how M.A.E.S. Therapy is so different to other approaches and offers new insights and knowledge about improving treatment of children with CP and similar neurodevelopmental conditions.
