Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT)

Neuro-developmental Therapy (NDT) is a hands-on treatment approach developed in order to enhance the function of children who have difficulty controlling movement, as a result of neurological challenges such as – cerebral palsy, pediatric stroke, Down’s syndrome, developmental delays, etc.

Neuro-developmental Therapy (NDT) is a holistic approach that works on the basic principle of inhibiting abnormal movement patterns and facilitating normal movement patterns in the correct postural alignment.

Functions of NDT:

  • The child gains confidence to navigate known and unknown environments.
  • They learn to perform their daily routine tasks with as minimal assistance as possible.
  • They learn functional movement patterns rather than adapting to compensations.
  • They find success with independence in play with a peer.

Focus of NDT is on improving the quality of movement!

  • Normalization of movement patterns
  • Integration of both sides of the body or reestablishment of symmetry of the body to increase functional use
  • Establishment of the ability to weight bear and weight shift through the limbs
