András Pető and the Bobaths

New comparative analysis

Just published this week –

Schenker, R., Capelovitch, S., Sutton, A., Rosenbaum, P. (2010)  Conductive Education and NDT-Bobath: experts' discussion on history, development and current practice, Israeli Journal of Occupational Therapy, vol. 19, no 2, pp. E31-53

If you are locked in 'discussions' with backwoodsmen and backwoodswomen from paediatrics and the therapies (especially from physiotherapy), you might be wishing to remind them that, in the upper echelons of their trades, there are those who think there to to be rather more in common between the two approaches than some others think divides them.

And if you are nor successful with such and audience, perhaps you might have more luck in sharing this with those outside any immediate dispute, in the media, public policy and administration, whose better understanding may be ultimately more important.
