NDT Facilitation Techniques

June 22-23 and June 25-26, 2018
Instructor: Lois Bly

This two day course (14.5 contact hours) will include lecture, lab and treatment demonstrations. An overview of principles of NDT facilitation will be presented, facilitation techniques will be reviewed and practiced on classmates, and treatment demonstrations by the instructor will apply the use of the techniques on children with developmental delays. During each session participants will learn facilitation techniques appropriate to use with children and adolescents with cerebral palsy. Participants will practice each technique on various classmates and will have techniques practiced on them. This is primarily a LAB COURSE. Participants must wear clothes that enable movement.
Facilitation techniques will include those used for transitional movements, trunk, upper extremity, and lower extremity mobility and control. There will be a treatment demonstration with a child with cerebral palsy on Friday and Saturday afternoon to demonstrate the actual application of the techniques. The book by Lois Bly and Allison Whiteside, Facilitation Techniques Based on NDT Principles will be used as the text.
