Contemporary NDT has undergone a paradigm shift that promotes thinking and doing in a new way! This course specifically helps therapists provide evidence-based early intervention in order to impact a baby and family’s life. Find out how and why this age is the time to emphasize prevention to maximize outcomes for gross motor, fine motor and respiration. Learn how to enhance developmental outcomes while considering the research that guides decision-making. Optimize ways to support parents in engaging with their children. Analyze development in neurotypical infants and compare to delayed and atypically developing babies and toddlers. An emphasis is placed on functional outcomes appropriate for this age group, and how to incorporate strategies into family life. Case analyses will include developmental delay, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and prematurity. This course utilizes lecture, labs, and videos.

This course was extremely insightful and enlightening. Suzanne was so intelligent, thoughtful, and well-spoken. This is a great introductory course to NDT-based principles, handling, and critical thinking process. Highly recommend to all. -Samantha, PT
Suzanne Davis was amazing at explaining and emphasizing the impact of the "big picture" and all the small steps that are required to progress to that goal. I believe as treating therapists sometimes it is easy to forget about all the small things to achieve prior to our ultimate goal. -Hannah S., OTR
I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in NDT! -Laura A., OTR
