 Reputed and distinguished speakers from SAARC countries & abroad (Australia, UK, Germany, USA)  participated in this 6 day academic program. The program included pre-conference workshops on relevant topics of Neuroscience Physical therapy for Rehabilitation professionals. It is now being increasingly realized in India as well that Neuroscience Rehabilitation has become a major science reducing social burden and enhancing quality of lives. It is also true that manpower training is a big bottleneck in the development of efficient rehabilitation services in the region. Keeping this in mind the NPTAI has pledged to provide a global platform for exchange of scientific information, ideas and experiences for professionals working in the field of Neuroscience Rehabilitation in SAARC countries.

Abstract of the Talk

NDT is a PROBLEM SOLVING APPROACH to the evaluation and treatment of impairments and functional limitations of children with CP & adults with neuropathology resulting from stroke or Traumatic Brain Injury (Howle 2002)

NDT is a holistic and interdisciplinary clinical practice model informed by current and evolving research that emphasizes individualized therapeutic handling based on movement analysis for habilitation and rehabilitation of individuals with neurological pathophysiology.

Using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) model, the therapist applies a problem-solving approach to assess activity and participation to identify and prioritize relevant integrities and impairments as a basis for the establishment of achievable outcomes with clients and caregivers.

NDT is the most commonly used model for therapeutic management and treatment of children with cerebral palsy. This session will mainly focus on the treatment of adults with hemiplegia following stroke

  • It will provide an understanding of analysis of postural control, movement, activity, and participation of the client
  • It will discuss the Key points on examination, evaluation, and intervention using the NDT concept
  •  Demonstration of Therapeutic handling on adults with hemiplegia

Learning Objectives:

  • Development, philosophy and theoretical foundations of NDT
  • General assumptions and evaluation in NDT approach
  • NDT enablement model of health and disability
  • Treatment strategies and demonstration of some techniques
