Springbrook, a leader in the support, care, and education of people with developmental disabilities will host Suzanne Davis Bombria PT, C/NDT— a clinician, teacher, and consultant in the field of Neuro-Developmental (NDT)—for a presentation titled “Contemporary NDT Treatment of the Baby and Young Child.”
The three-day course, which is designed for Physical, Speech, and Occupational Therapists, will help those who attend learn how to assess and treat children from 0-3 years old with suspected or previously identified neuromotor impairments.
The course will take place from April 13-15 and will be held in the Family Engagement Center on Springbrook’s Main Campus, in Oneonta, NY. Those who attend the course will learn how to better identify sensory-motor issues specifically related to infants, analyze gross motor, fine motor, and respiratory function, and develop treatment plans for the infant and toddler.
Bombria will provide theoretical and practical solutions which therapists of all disciplines can apply to their practices. The course will focus primarily on the practical application of treatment strategies and how to incorporate therapeutic strategies into family life.
Over the course of a 30-year career as a pediatric therapist and instructor, Bombria has shared her skills with therapists around the world. Over 300 of her courses have been taught to therapists from Australia to Central America in clinical outpatient, school-based, in-patient rehabilitation, and acute care settings.
