      Deborah, where in geography are you? We need a new pediatric physio Aug 1 if you want to move.

      Your intro post is on your user profile page, along with my answers. Click on your own name if you can't find it . The usual way is to click on User CP in the top left corner of the box above the thread.

        hallo Deborah
        Nice to see more paediatric physiotherapists on board.
        We are a little "different".
        I would personly like to know a bit more about what Barett said about the Bobaths. Will see if I can find that. My girslfriend/colleagues was trained by them and was an international teacher for many years. Like me she trained in more methods , such as Vojta and sensoromotor therapy and that was before our new general paediatric postgraduate study started (beginning 1990´s) In Holland we (many of us) have left the path of "the methods" and are much more into EBM and functional physiotherapy.(M.Ketelaar Functional approach to physical therapy in CP 1999).

        Look forward to communicating with you.
