New York/Stuttgart – Thieme Publishers and the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Association will be showcasing Neuro-Developmental Treatment: A Guide to NDT Clinical Practice at APTA-CSM from February 15th to 18th in 2017. Authored by instructors of the NDTA, this book is the culmination of a five-year project aimed toward developing an up-to-date guide to the neurorehabilitation approach originally developed by Karl and Berta Bobath.

The comprehensive volume provides vital support for both novice and experienced practitioners of NDT by integrating the latest theoretical foundations with real-life practice examples. With a large section of case studies in the book, additional online case studies, and supplemental materials including videos, tables, and photos, this book makes it simple to learn the practical aspects of neuro-developmental treatment.

“I am proud of the work my fellow practitioners have put into this book,” editor Judith C. Bierman said. “A variety of expert clinicians and educators who practice Neuro-Developmental Treatment came together to create a truly interdisciplinary and multimedia text, which we hope will be of use to new and experienced NDT practitioners alike. In addition it can serve as a valuable resource in professional graduate studies.”

With more than 30 contributors and online content including case videos, an additional chapter, and a practice model flow chart, this book sets the standard in NDT education. Both Thieme and the NDTA will attend the APTA-CSM conference. Thieme will be located at booth 826 while the NDTA will be at booth 121.
