Overview                                                               
Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) is a functionally-based, patient-centered therapeutic approach practiced by Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech-Language Pathologists who work with individuals who live with cerebral palsy, stroke, traumatic brain injury and other neuromuscular-based movement disorders.  Individuals with central nervous system dysfunction often have difficulty sustaining positions and moving, limiting their functional independence.   NDT is a hands-on intervention approach for individuals of any age, and ability level, who live with neuromuscular-based movement dysfunction.  The NDT process of intervention requires detailed analysis of movement, and ongoing assessment.  The focus of NDT-based treatment is to enhance the child’s function based on the family’s need and wants. The goals of the family form the foundation of the intervention plan. NDT- trained therapists work in all practice settings.  We believe in a team approach.  NDT-trained therapists work closely with the individual, their family, care providers, physicians, and other health care professionals, to develop and manage a comprehensive patient-centered program.  NDT is an intervention approach that has stood the test of time!  Recent advances in the field of neurobiology, the emergence of new theories of motor control, brain recovery, and a greater understanding of the development and refinement of movement across the life span has enhanced, enriched, and supported the NDT approach.
