Two further MAES Courses planned for UK in 2018 – see below.
The second MAES Course to be held in the UK completed at the end of September and was a great success. Here are a few comments from therapists who have taken the MAES Course:
“MAES Therapy helps you move on from your treatment ‘ plateau’ and keep progressing”
‘Before the start of the MAES Course, I thought it would be like any other paediatric course, working on movements to ‘correct’ or ‘normalise’ some issues of the affected individual; but from the whole journey through the course, I now understand Cerebral Palsy and neuro-developmental conditions much better than I did from any of the books or concepts of the past.

‘This MAES Course was a really good experience for me. It totally changed my physiotherapy viewpoint and I can see children in a more complex way. It was not easy for me to change my viewpoint about Cerebral Palsy and therapy. However, it was the best thing that could happen for me. MAES Therapy gave us a new framework in which we can develop children much more then before and not only that, it gave me the possibility to develop also.
JP – Thank you for an amazing 4 Weeks. It has been very inspiring, educational and you have opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities for treating children with CP. Many thanks! CP. PT
The therapists enjoyed learning about this new and pioneering approach to the treatment and management of Children with CP and similar neurodevelopmental conditions.
All participants said they will now approach their therapy treatments with a different perspective, using their new assessment and handling skills to achieve more rewarding and successful outcomes for their patients.
The venue for this year’s course was The Mendip School, Somerset, and we would like to thank all the staff for their hospitality and support.
Also, a BIG ‘Thank You’ to Helen King PT who helped it initiate and organise this course and to Ali Martin PT for her assistance. It wouldn’t have been possible without them !
