Gain a new insight into children with CP

‘MAES Therapy’ is a unique and dynamic approach which allows for a very specific, individualised approach to therapy. Each child has individual needs, skills, limitations and possibilities and therefore needs a very individual treatment. Rather than just treat the visible symptoms, it makes you look at it from the perspective of the child and explains why the child moves as he does.

Jean-Pierre will present and analyse videos and introduce the MAES Therapy Framework, which equips therapists with tools about how to progress in treatment and explains therapeutic principles to parents.
