Conference Host

It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us at the Biennial EBTA Congress 2020 to be held for the first time in Switzerland at CHUV (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois- University Hospital Centre Vaud) in Lausanne from 9th to 12th September 2020.

The European Bobath Tutors Association is a network of Bobath teaching teams, comprising over 200 Bobath Tutors. EBTA’s tasks are to set, maintain and update standards of Bobath courses across Europe. Additionally, EBTA has a mandate to encourage and implement therapy research and encourage EBTA tutors to help in developing countries.

Bobath/NDT offers an individualized holistic way of observation, analysis and treatment of people with Cerebral palsy delivered by expert physio, occupational and speech therapists in collaboration with medical doctors.

Bobath Concept focuses on maximising the potential of children and adults with Cerebral palsy and neurological conditions in their own family / school / social environment.

We are part of a large network of therapists working together with families, school teachers, caregivers, psychologists, medical doctors in neurology, rehabilitation, paediatricians, orthopaedics and colleagues who produce specialized technology and equipment.

EBTA Conferences aim to provide transdisciplinary scientific education for Bobath/NDT therapists and medical doctors. However, all professionals working with people who have Cerebral Palsy and their families, and adults who have this condition, who are interested in the Bobath approach are welcome to join the congress.

The program will be complemented with a professional exhibition, offering companies and agencies a unique opportunity to show their latest products and discuss ideas for the future.

We are sure that this network involved in Cerebral Palsy and developmental disorders will benefit from this Conference.

That is why we are delighted to welcome you to our Congress, and are sure that we will all benefit from this exchange of ideas and knowledge.
