“The MAES Course has completely changed how I understand the different difficulties of CP. It has explained the aspects that could not be explained by other concepts before. It has filled in the ‘gaps’.
“Sometimes in life, you learn something that adds to your knowledge and skills and makes you a better therapist. I now realise that there is a completely different way of looking at approaching children with CP.
Thank you JP for pioneering this approach, so that we can have a bigger impact on children with CP.

"The MAES Course will change the way you look at all neurological patients. It goes deeper than just what the child does; instead, it teaches why the child does what he does and provides new treatment strategies.
The course teaches how to help the child access new ways to use the brain and to change this through the use of his body.
This is a course for anyone working in neurology, especially paediatrics.”
