NDTATM Certificate course includes didactic information informed by current evidence, hands-on lab work in which participants practice problem solving and application of intervention strategies, treatment demonstrations by instructors, and mentored clinical practice in which participants work with a variety of clients.
Instruction in the contemporary practice of NDT as an interdisciplinary team approach assures that all therapists learn to address each client using a holistic philosophy. All therapists, regardless of discipline, cover the same course material. Throughout the course, participants assess and treat clients with neuromuscular disorders to gain a thorough understanding of each individual’s underlying posture and movement impairments and the resultant functional consequences. The application of the ICF, as well as evidence from motor learning, neuroplasticity, and current rehabilitation trends, will be emphasized during assessment and treatment within the NDT contemporary practice model.
Upon completion of this certificate course the participants will be able to:
- Analyze effective and ineffective components of posture and movement.
- Identify the relationships between function, posture and movement components, and system integrities and impairments in individuals with neuromuscular disorders.
- Discuss evidence-based practices when working with clients with neurological impairments.
- Demonstrate effective NDT clinical reasoning & problem-solving, using assessment findings to develop appropriate treatment plans.
- Develop and implement therapeutic handling strategies that result in changes in the client, including: improved sensorimotor performance, achievement of functional goals, and enhanced participation in meaningful activities.
RELEVANT FOR: Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Speech and Language therapists. We recommend where possible that interdisciplinary team members attend the course together.
