Training To Work With Children With Cerebral Palsy

Congratulations to Therapy Assistant Sam Donovan who has successfully completed a Therapy Assistants course at The Bobath Centre in North London. This two-day introductory course included an introduction to the Bobath approach to enable trainees to develop their skills and work more effectively with children with cerebral palsy.

Sam gained insight into the different presentations, how function may be affected, learn some principles of treatment and saw how Bobath therapists apply their skills to activities such as play and communication through observation of demonstrations and discussion.

The course included a mix of lectures, videos, treatment demonstrations and group work, including trying some practical skills on each other.
