We provide therapy services for the physical rehabilitation of adults with neurological diagnoses, with an emphasis on Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) and Balance Rehabilitation. NDT is an established and respected approach to the rehabilitation of individuals with stroke, brain injury and other neurological problems.
This hands-on approach is used to provide therapeutic intervention to people who have central nervous system problems that create difficulties in controlling movement. Therapists using NDT treatment have completed advanced training in NDT and work closely with individuals with neurological challenges (e.g. stroke, head injury, cerebral palsy), helping them to become as independent as possible.
NDT-trained therapists work collaboratively with individuals, family members, caregivers and physicians to develop comprehensive treatment programs based on the principles of human neurology and physiology. Individuals who have minimal to severe motor difficulties can benefit from the NDT approach.
Our professionals have received the “C/NDT” certification from the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Association, and are Instructors in this approach.
Monica Diamond and Thomas Diamond each hold the “C/NDT” certification conferred by the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Association.
Monica is a Coordinator-Instructor with the NDTA and teaches and coordinates NDTA Certificate courses.
