MAES Therapy Information Talk for Parents & Paediatric Therapists – London
Over 30 Parents and Paediatric Therapists ( PT, OT, SLT ) gained a new and expert insight into children with Cerebral Palsy and the pioneering MAES Therapy Approach. The 2-Hour Seminar was followed by a lively Q&A session including discussion about cerebral palsy physiotherapy treatment in London.
As one parent said afterwards: “I wish that this specialist therapy was available through the NHS for all children with CP, so they could all benefit.”
The title of the Talk was: ‘A Better Understanding of Children with Cerebral Palsy and similar Neuro-developmental Conditions’
This Talk was for the benefit of:
- Parents, Grandparents and relatives of children with CP and similar neurological conditions
- Therapists (PT, OT, SLT) and medical Doctors (paediatricians & neurologists)
Speaker: Jean-Pierre Maes MCSP, Consultant Neurodevelopmental Physiotherapist,
Director MAES Therapy International, London
Jean-Pierre presented and analysed videos and introduced the MAES Therapy Framework, which equips therapists with tools about how to progress in treatment and explains therapeutic principles to parents. There was discussion about cerebral palsy symptoms and cerebral palsy diagnosis and early therapy treatment cerebral palsy.
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.
Venue: Gwyn Jones Primary School, Leytonstone, London
