Study: Intensive Neurodevelopment Treatment Improves Motor Functions in Children with Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delays

Study: Intensive Neurodevelopment Treatment Improves Motor Functions in Children with Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delays

A new study out of Korea analyzed the effects of intensive neurodevelopment treatment, or NDT, in children with developmental delays. Published in February 2017 in the journal Annals of Rehabilitation Medicine, researchers found that intensive NDT—marked by longer and more frequent therapy sessions than conventional NDT—significantly improved motor function in children with developmental delays, including those with cerebral palsy. The study looked at 42 children with a median age of 5 years old (24 of whom had cerebral palsy) who participated in intensive NDT three times a week (60 minutes of therapy per day for three months), followed by conventional NDT (30 minutes of therapy once or twice a week) for another 3 months. Researchers concluded that all children not only improved their gross motor functions, but maintained the improved function even after the study ended.
