MAES Introduction Course – for Paediatric Therapists Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust

In late February, we ran a MAES Introduction Course – for  Paediatric Therapists from Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust at  Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup, Kent

23 Therapists (PT and OT ) came together as a team to learn about MAES Therapy – a new and deeper understanding of Children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neurodevelopmental conditions and principles to improve their coordination.

Therapists were very interested and pleased to learn about this pioneering approach to treatment, with positive questions and engagement throughout the 2-Day programme, which included theoretical lectures, video analysis and a live treatment demonstration.

It was a 2-Day ‘Introduction’ Course  and the full 4-Week Foundation Course would be needed to learn the principles and approach in greater depth and how to put this all together to further develop clinical reasoning and treatment skills and an extensive repertoire of new treatment strategies.

 

Dates:    Friday 22  & Saturday 23 February 2018 

Venue:  Acorns, Children and Young People’s Services,  Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup, Kent

Many thanks to Jane Thompson PT, Paediatric Therapy Manager, Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust and her colleagues – who helped to organise this successful and stimulating course.
