6. The NDTA Enablement Model

Hoping not to confuse things,  I’ve added this separate post to clarify that I use the NDTA interpretation of the ICF -which is called the NDTA Enablement Model.  This model  adds one category: POSTURE, ALIGNMENT AND MOVEMENT.    This section answers the question of how a child moves.

When it is included in the report, I have found that it often justifies the need for equipment, especially in the GMFCS V population of kids.  I find it an extremely valuable addition, so I am including it in my discussion in later posts.  Keep in mind that it is not part of the traditional WHO ICF,  but an additional category added by the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Association specifically because it is helpful for PT, OT and ST problem solving.
