What is Neurodevelopmental Physiotherapy?

Neurodevelopmental Physiotherapists are specially trained to provide assessment and intervention for children and adults with neurological conditions.

The Neurodevelopmental Physiotherapist works with the client and family to optimize mobility, coordination, strength, balance, postural control, sensorimotor processing, gross motor skills, motor planning, task performance and participation in meaningful daily activities. Children with a neurological condition benefit from Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT). 1to1’s Physiotherapists have training in the Cuevas MEDEK Exercise (CME) Program and NDT training.

What is a Physiotherapist?

  • A professional with a master’s degree in Physiotherapy. They are trained in identifying and addressing issues that interfere with a patient’s ability to move independently and functionally.
  • Trained to complete both standardized and informal assessments in a variety of areas including gross motor development, posture, movement, strength, endurance, balance or coordination deficits whether the cause is orthopedic, neurological, cardiovascular or even unknown.
  • Trained to develop and deliver evidence-based intervention plans through direct intervention and consultation with parents, professionals, classroom and resource teachers. Physiotherapists at 1to1 Therapy Services are also trained and experienced in prescribing adaptive/assistive equipment to achieve independent gross motor function.

Why is Physiotherapy important?

  • Early intervention is recommended to ensure that your child begins to reach his/her potential of independent and quality mobility as soon as possible.
  • Children (infants, pre-school and school-aged) are developing crucial life skills they will require for years to come. These skills are all profoundly impacted by mobility, including independence, exploration, recreation and social skills. Physiotherapy enables children to become more independent and confident in these areas.
  • Children are at risk of being teased and self-esteem/inclusion issues, which may affect social and academic participation.
  • Adult or elderly clients may have challenges with increased pain or decreased mobility and decreased range of motion. Physiotherapists are able to provide a variety of treatments in order to return the client to optimal function or manage pain.

What are the advantages of working with a Physiotherapist?

  • Remediation of a functional issue that can have a lifelong social, academic, recreational and vocational impact on a child
  • Increased confidence, self-awareness, independence and participation
  • Individualized treatment programs provided via direct instruction to infants, children, adults and their families
  • Comprehensive assessments revealing an analysis of strengths, weaknesses and goals to achieve meaningful participation in his or her daily activities
  • Consultation with daycare, classroom and resource teachers if necessary
  • Decrease risk of falls in adult or elderly clients
  • Increased mobility and range of motion in extremities
