Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) at Child and Family Development

According to the Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) Association, the NDT Approach is used for management and treatment of individuals with central nervous system (CNS) pathphysiology. The individual’s strengths and impairments are identified and addressed in relation to functional abilities and limitations. The NDT Approach continues to evolve with the emergence of new theories, models, research, and information in the movement sciences. NDT is a hands-on, problem solving approach. Intervention involves direct handling and guidance to optimize function. The approach is guided by the client’s reactions throughout every treatment session.


An NDT Trained or NDT Certified‚Ñ¢ therapist’s education in neurology, physiology, and current research is translated into daily practice. They work collaboratively with patients, families, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals to develop individualized comprehensive treatment programs based on NDT theory and philosophy.
