is to inform you that, we are organizing course on “NDT / Bobath Certificate

The 3-week course in the Neuro-Developmental Treatment (Bobath) Approach to Adults with
Hemiplegia is an intensive training course comprising both theoretical and practical work. The material presented in the course
is based on the theoretical and practical constructs developed by Dr. Karl and Mrs. Berta Bobath and conforms to standards
established by the International Bobath Instructors Training Association. Coordinator Instructor is in charge of the course.
Additional appropriate professionals will also teach and assist in the course. The course
curriculum will cover:
-Fundamentals of the NDT philosophy
-Normal and abnormal movement analysis
-Application of Neuro-Developmental treatment to the adult patient with hemiplegia
More than half of the course is practical and clinical in nature. The course practicums
call for intensive movement sessions (to move, to be moved, and to move each other). The participants will assess and treat
adult patients with hemiplegia. This supervised patient treatment will be an ongoing part of the course. Care is taken throughout
the course to present the material in an integrated fashion with the expectation that students will gain an understanding
of the interdisciplinary nature of the NDT approach, as well as identification of the role of their particular discipline
in use of this approach with adult patients with hemiplegia.
Participants who satisfactorily complete the course will be given an IBITA, Inc. certificate.
Permission for absence from the course cannot be given except for serious illness or emergency. Certificates may not be awarded
to participants who are absent at any time during the course.
