A better understanding of children with Cerebral Palsy and similar neurodevelopmental conditions and principles to improve their coordination


MAES Therapy Introduction course for Paediatric Therapists new or experienced (Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech & Language Therapists) who wish to specialise or further specialise in children with neurodevelopmental conditions and further develop their clinical reasoning and treatment skills in relation to children with CP.

A different dimension to the treatment and management of children with Cerebral Palsy, based upon 25 years’ expert clinical practice and teaching experience world-wide.

“The MAES Introduction Course really helped me look at children with CP in a different way and I can see that it will develop my clinical reasoning and treatment skills. Highly recommended.”    Audhill Sund  Specialist Paediatric Physiotherapist


Course Aims:  To introduce participants to:

  • The MAES Therapy framework: a specific framework for identifying the relationship between skills and tasks and its relevance in understanding the reasons for atypical patterns of coordination for each child with Cerebral Palsy. 
  • An understanding of why missing specific components of coordination have long-term consequences on the ability to participate in activities of everyday life (including mobility, self-care, play and communication).
  • Appreciate the necessity of providing the child with a different path for development by acting upon the process of development, rather than the obvious symptoms
  • Understand the application of the MAES Therapy framework to develop individualised treatment strategies for each child.
  • Understand the need for therapists to develop a wide repertoire of strategies to enable the child to learn new ways that he would have difficulty with, or would not be able to develop on his own.
