NeuroDevelopmental Therapy Association
Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) is an advanced therapeutic approach practiced by experienced Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech - Language Pathologists. This hands-on approach is used in working with people who have central nervous system insults 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. cerebral palsy, stroke, head injury), helping them to become as independent as possible. NDT-trained therapists work collaboratively with individuals, family, 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.

Cascade DAFO™ is the originator of the DAFO™ concept of bracing. Our braces are offered as a part of a system, which is unique amongst manufacturers. We take into consideration that:
>Each patient is an individual, requiring a brace that addresses their specific functional challenges and goals.
>Each patient is conscious of their appearance and prefers a product that is unobtrusive and yet appealing in appearance.
>For an orthosis to be effective, the patient must be willing to wear it.
>As a child with physical challenges grows, changes, and achieves functional goals, their requirements for medical equipment also changes.
>The practitioner providing the brace requires a method that translates into the best fitting and most effective product possible.
