Course Format:

This certified course is very ‘hands-on’. The format will include theoretical lectures, treatment demonstrations, workshops, case presentations and supervised daily practical sessions with patients during weeks 3 and 4.

Unique of its kind, this course has a strong emphasis on high-level observation, analysis and clinical skills. There is an unusually high level of supervised practical sessions, with a wide variety of case presentations, giving depth and breadth to the learning experience. The course is specially designed to give participants time to translate theory into clinical practice and become expert in handling and managing their clients with neuro-developmental conditions.

Format kursa:

Ovaj sertifikovani kurs je vrlo praktične prirode. Organizovan je tako da uključuje teorijske lekcije, demonstracije tretmana, radionice, prezentacije slučaja i svakodnevne nadzirane praktične sesije sa pacijentima tokom 3. i 4. nedelje kursa.

Jedinstvene prirode, ovaj kurs ima snažan naglasak na razvoj visokog kvaliteta posmatranja, analize i kliničkih veština. Neuobičajeno veliki broj nadziranih praktičnih sesija sa širokim spektrom prezentacija slučaja doprinosi dubini i obimu iskustva učenja.

Course Participant’s Criteria:

Participants must be experienced Paediatric Therapists (Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists,  Speech Therapists) or medical Doctors (paediatricians, neurologists), with at least two years experience in treating children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neurological conditions. The course will appeal to therapists who are about to take their first postgraduate course in the field of Cerebral Palsy as well as to very experienced therapists who have already taken several specialist courses (e.g. Conductive Education, Vojta, NDT-Bobath, Sensory Integration, etc.).

Kriterijumi za učesnike kursa:

Učesnik kursa mora biti iskusan pedijatrijski terapeut (fizioterapeut, radni terapeut, logoped) ili lekar (pedijatar, neurolog…) sa minimum dve godine iskustva u radu sa decom sa cerebralnom paralizom i sličnim neurološkim stanjima. Kurs će doneti benefit kako terapeutima kojima je ovo prvi postdiplomski kurs iz oblasti cerebralne paralize, tako i iskusnim terapeutima koji su već završili neke od specijalizovanih kurseva (n.p.r. Konduktivna edukacija, Vojta, NRT – Bobath, Senzorna integracija…)

Course Lead by Jean-Pierre Maes MCSP and MAES Team:

Jean-Pierre Maes MCSP, Founder and Director of M.A.E.S. Therapy International, is an expert in the field of Cerebral Palsy and similar neurodevelopmental conditions and movement disorders. For over 30 years he has been teaching and treating extensively worldwide (in over 35 countries), giving him unparalleled experience and insight into neuro-paediatrics.  He is renowned internationally for both his excellent clinical and teaching skills.

He qualified as a physiotherapist in 1989 in Brussels, Belgium and specialised in adult and child neurology soon after.

He worked in private practice, at the Belgian Bobath Centre, Brussels, in a Special School near Birmingham, UK, followed by being a Consultant Neurodevelopmental Physiotherapist and Senior NDT-Bobath Tutor  at The Bobath Centre (London) from 1998 until 2013.

Jean-Pierre wanted to progress and to improve the treatment of children further  and so In 2013, he started teaching M.A.E.S. Therapy (Movement Analysis & Education Strategies), a pioneering approach to the treatment and management of Children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neurodevelopmental conditions.

The success of this new approach, led to him to develop M.A.E.S. Therapy Courses world-wide, through Introductory Courses, 4-Week Foundation Courses and Advanced Courses for paediatric therapists who want to specialise, or to further specialise, in the treatment of children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neurodevelopmental conditions and who want to gain new insights, deeper knowledge and expert clinical skills.

 

Kurs vodi Jean-Pierre Maes MCSP i MAES tim:

Jean-Pierre Maes MCSP, osnivač I direktor M.A.E.S. Therapy International, je specijalista u oblasti cerebralne paralize i sličnih neurorazvojnih stanja i poremećaja kretanja. Preko 30 godina intenzivnih obuka terapeuta i tretiranja dece širom sveta (u preko 35 zemalja), dalo mu je nemerljivo iskustvo i znanje iz oblasti neuro-pedijatrije.

Priznat je širom sveta po svojim izvanrednim kliničkim i predavačkim veštinama.

Kvalifikovao se za fizioterapeuta 1989. godine u Briselu, Belgija; nedugo nakon toga se specijalizovao za adultnu i dečiju neurologiju.

Radio je u privatnoj praksi, Belgijskom Bobath centru u Briselu, Specijalnoj školi u Birminghamu, UK, nakon čega postaje neurorazvojni terapeut – konsultant  i senior NRT-Bobath tutor  u Bobath centru (London) od 1998. do 2013.

Jean-Pierre želeo je da dodatno unapredi tretman dece, zbog čega 2013. godine počinje da obučava terapeute M.A.E.S. terapiji (Movement Analysis & Education Strategies), pionirskom pristupu u bavljenju i u tretmanu dece sa cerebralnom paralizom i sličnim neurorazvojnim smetnjama.

Uspeh ovog novog pristupa omogućio mu je da organizuje kurseve M.A.E.S. terapije širom sveta u vidu Uvodnog kursa, Osnovnog četvoronedeljnog kursa i naprednih kurseva za pedijatrijske terapeute koji žele da se specijalizuju ili dalje specijalizuju za tretman dece sa cerebralnom paralizom i sličnim neurorazvojnim stanjima i koji žele da prodube znanje, steknu nove uvide i usavrše kliničke veštine.

Course Aims:

This course aims to:

  • Provide a ‘Framework’ for an effective assessment and better understanding of the challenges and needs of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and similar neurodevelopmental conditions
  • Gain expertise in analysis of coordination and effective and structured clinical reasoning skills.
  • Analyse Tasks in term of fine and gross motor, sensory, perceptual, biomechanical and cognitive components.
  • Relate the quality of execution of given tasks to the specific skills that the child has been able to develop and use to accomplish these tasks.
  • Predict motor behaviour (prognosis) based upon an in-depth analysis of typical presentations associated to spastic hypertonia, dyskinetic CP, ataxia, hypotonia and CP associated with preterm birth.
  • Understand the short and long-term consequences for the child to engage in complex activities, when the skills available are missing and consequently for therapists to establish priorities and short and long-term treatment plans to change the child’s natural course of development.
  • Develop high-level problem-solving skills to provide each child with specific sensory-motor experiences to make best use of their own potential for improvement.
  • Prioritise and identify which specific skills a child is missing and that need to be promoted and at the same time discouraging the compensatory strategies this child is over-relying upon and which prevents the development of more advanced skills.
  • Expand creative thinking and develop an extensive repertoire of treatment strategies and skills, which can then be applied more confidently in a range of situations to enable the child to learn new ways that he would have difficulty or not be able to develop on his own.
  • Effectively inform and guide parents during treatment sessions, including the use of toys for play and advise them how to best interact with their child during activities of daily living in a home environment.

 

Ciljevi kursa:

Po završetku kursa polaznik će:

  • Dobiti okvir za efikasnu procenu i bolje razumevanje problema i potreba dece sa cerebralnom paralizom (CP) i sličnim neurorazvojnim stanjima.
  • Steći stručnost u analizi koordinacije i veštine efikasnog i struktuiranog kliničkog rezonovanja.
  • Naučiti da analizira zadatke uzimajući u obzir grubu i finu motoriku, senzorne, perceptivne, biomehaničke i kognitivne komponente.
  • Uvideti vezu između kvaliteta u izvođenju datog zadatka i specifičnih veština koje je dete uspelo da razvije i koristi kako bi izvršilo zadatak.
  • Moći da predvidi (prognozira) motorno ponašanje na osnovu temeljne analize tipičnih prezentacija CP u vidu spastične hipertonije, diskinetske CP, ataksije, hipotonije i CP kao posledice prevremenog rođenja.
  • Razumeti kratkoročne i dugoročne posledice učešća u kompleksnim aktivnostima kada detetu nedostaju neophodne veštine, shodno čemu će terapeut odrediti prioritete, kratkoročni i dugoročni plan tretmana u cilju promene prognoziranog smera razvoja.
  • Razviti prvoklasne veštine u rešavanju individualnih problema svakog deteta, obezbeđujući svakome specifično senzomotorno iskustvo kako bi se najbolje iskoristio potencijal deteta za napredak.
  • Uspeti da identifikuje i razgraniči specifične veštine koje detetu nedostaju i koje je neophodno promovisati, istovremeno obeshrabrujući kompenzatorne strategije u koje se dete uzda, a koje onemogućavaju razvoj naprednijih veština.
  • Ojačati svoje kreativno razmišljanje i proširiti repertoar veština i strategija u tretmanu, što će biti primenjivo sa više samopouzdanja u različitim situacijama i omogućiti detetu nove načine za rešavanje problema, a koje bi mu inače bilo teško ili nemoguće samostalno da iskusi.
  • Umeti da efikasno vodi roditelje kroz tretman, uključujući upotrebu igračaka i igru i da obuči reditelje kako da se na najbolji način bave svojim detetom tokom aktivnosti dnevnog života u kućnim uslovima.
