This five-day introductory level course provides a unique opportunity for health care professionals to gain insight into the basic principles of the NDT approach and how it is applied in clinical practice to promote recovery of function in individuals with neurological impairments. Current theoretical foundations and evidence supporting an NDT approach will be presented as well as specific and practical information about management of the adult neurological patient. The information will be appropriate to many rehabilitation professionals and will be presented so that it can be incorporated into a variety of practice settings. The overall objective is to enable participants to bring information back to their facility and apply it toward promoting more functional movement and achieving functional outcomes with their patients.
