Assist clients of all ages who have neurological disorders in reaching their highest functional levels using the first "how-to" instructional manual on facilitation techniques based on neuro-developmental treatment (NDT) principles.
This resource provides strategies for observing and evaluating the movements of clients who demonstrate problems with coordinated movement. It gives kinesiological reasons why clients move as they do and illustrates how to use kinesiology-based techniques.
Help your clients develop better:
- Active functional movement
- Movement on the sagittal, frontal, and transverse planes
- Base of support while prone, sitting, quadruped, kneeling, or standing
- Range of motion.
Incorporate facilitation techniques into functional patterns and activities that are meaningful to the client as part of your treatment programme. Become aware of how sensory issues, both extrinsic and intrinsic, greatly affect the success of facilitation techniques.
