Neuro-Developmental Therapy (NDT)

This hands-on approach is used in working with people who have central nervous system insults. Therapists using NDT treatment have completed advanced training in NDT and work closely with individuals with neurological challenges (e.g. cerebral palsy, stroke, head injury), helping them to become as independent as possible and enhancing a person's quality of life. The individual's strengths and impairments are identified through an in-depth analytical process and addressed in relation to functional abilities and limitations. Individuals who have minimal to severe difficulties can benefit from the NDT approach. NDT is an interactive process which includes the individual, caregivers and members of the interdisciplinary team in assessment, treatment planning, and application.
