You can now print unlimited copies of selected articles to give to parents.
This book contains a collection of reproducible articles written by leaders in the field on topics related to the theories of Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT), which was created by Karl and Berta Bobath. Occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and physical therapists can reproduce individual handouts for parents, selecting those that are appropriate to share with a particular parent about his or her child at a specific time. Groups of topics include:
* History and theory of NDT
* Social-emotional aspects
* Posture and positioning
* Movement and touch
* Personal care
* Play and recreation
* Communication and school activities
* References are also included to help families learn more about the needs of children with disabilities, as well as the needs and roles of parents in the therapy process.
