Read what they say about the M.A.E.S. Course in London !
“If you want to work with children with cerebral palsy and neuro disability, this MAES course is essential for you. After years of working with children with CP, I recognised my intervention was beginning to become repetitive and I have doubted my effectiveness. I am very much a hands-on therapist and keen to develop my skills.
Great use of videos to support learning points and great workshops and practical sessions to bring theory to life.
The MAES Approach holds the key to unlocking the potential for so many children and this is such an exciting prospect.”
Carey Perkins, Specialised Paediatric Physiotherapist
St Albans, UK
“The MAES Course is a wonderful opportunity dementedly stretch yourself in approaching children with CP in a more comprehensive and holistic manner. It clearly highlights that the problems stem from the brain and the more traditional approaches to treating children with CP have strayed from this.
The video analyses done throughout the course were extremely useful in highlighting obvious (and not so obvious) strategies used by the child. The workshops were essential for knowing how to apply what we had learnt, plus more.
The use of the MAES Framework makes it easier to identify missing skills for children with CP. Highly recommended.”
Cara Johnson, Paediatric Physiotherapist
“If therapists truly want to be better at what they do in treating children with cerebral palsy, then this MAES Course is essential.
I feel it has taken me on the path to becoming the therapist I have always wanted to be, one that can really make a difference.
I would say to other colleagues that the course is exciting, refreshing and will change your way of thinking for all the right reasons. I have loved being on this course and have truly enjoyed all of it, even the hard/ challenging parts – it has been continual learning. Thank you for everything.”
Pam Townsend, Paediatric Physiotherapist
“This MAES Course was a ‘game-changer’ for me. It has given me so much knowledge about CP and neurological conditions and practical advice to further develop during my work. The best (and scariest) thing, is that the MAES Approach is based on principles rather than a fixed method of treating CP. Because of that, therapists have got the freedom to use it according to their and their clients’ needs.
I would definitely recommend this course to my colleagues.”
Katalin Halasz, Paediatric Physiotherapist
“Neuro will never be the same again, it will be better than I ever imagined it could be. This MAES Course has completely changed the way I approach cerebral palsy and my understanding compared to what I was taught.
Be prepared for your brain to be challenged in a way that it has never been before, – but in a good way! This course is a rollercoaster of emotions and more than anything challenges your ego, if you can be humble and except that is difficult because you are essentially ‘learning to walk again’ then I truly believe that you will work better than you ever thought you could.”
Nicol Indermaur, Paediatric Physiotherapist
“It has completely opened up a different way of assessing and treating and will enable me to understand the child and the consequences of my treatments more deeply. By learning to tune into a child’s skills to understand the areas they are struggling with and basing my treatment around that missing piece has helped me reconsider the way I had previously been doing things as a therapist. I now believe that I will be able to help children improve their overall well-being rather than just concentrating on their movement.”
Bev Randle-Bissell, Paediatric Physiotherapist
“This course changed my view and to see cerebral palsy from each child’s perspective and how different types of CP affect their learning process. I enjoyed and found very useful all the practical sessions, workshops and video analysis. MAES Therapy helps us to improve the way we treat, to progress our treatment every time and to move on from the ‘plateau’.
Eleni Taxidou, M.Sc. NDT Paediatric Physiotherapist
“This MAES Course has improved my clinical reasoning and treatment options for neurological conditions. The structure of the course work well as it flowed well and changed appropriately when it needed to stop it has opened my eyes to the variability of CP and how the brain works. It has been useful and enjoyable in many different ways.”
Sam Crossley, Paediatric Physiotherapist
“I have been trying to get on this MAES Course for 18 months and the course met my expectations beyond my imagination. I now feel I can change and improve things for children with CP, that can’t be affected when you only focus on the physical presentation.”
Ceren Durmuş, Paediatric Physiotherapist
