What goes wrong in the control and coordination of the systems in individuals with neuromuscular disorders, such as CP, or in cases of stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI)? 3.

2 NDT Practice Theory Assumptions and Principles: An Overview 2 Neuro-Developmental Treatment Practice Theory Assumptions and Principles: An Overview Judith C. Bierman This chapter begins with a brief explanation of the clinical importance of theories, assumptions, and principles of intervention to guide and aid in decision making within the Neuro-Developmental treatment (NDT) framework. Three categories of questions are presented to organize the development of a theoretical foundation for NDT practice.

Change theories can enable program planners to explain why they assume a program will work. They can help planners to identify what should be monitored during program evaluation and intervention. Within broad theories the therapist makes assumptions that guide or frame the entire evaluation, intervention planning, and implementation process. Assumptions are common and useful in day-to-day life. We assume that the sun will rise again tomorrow and that gravity will influence everyone. We assume that it is more important to consider a person’s body systems to understand the activity limitations or participation restrictions rather than assuming that the person is lazy, uncooperative, or simply in need of more practice to reach a desired outcome.
