Neuro-Developmental Therapy Programs

Neuro-Developmental Therapy Programs is run by Ian Hunter, a Brain Injury Therapist since 1975. After completing Physical Education studies at the University of Melbourne, Ian studied Brain Injury Therapy at the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, USA. He returned to Australia in 1977 and established the Australian Centre for Brain Injury Children. He went into private practice in 1991, establishing Neuro-Developmental Therapy Programs.

As a Brain Injury Therapist with over 40 years experience, Ian Hunter has worked with several thousand children and adults, and has come across almost every kind of brain injury imaginable. This vast experience has enabled him to create an online version of Neuro-Developmenal Therapy Programs. Ian wrote a book some years ago “Brain Injury - Tapping the Potential Within”. It is now out of print but is still worth reading to get a better understanding of brain injury. You can read, print, or download a free PDF copy of the book here. Ian also created Developing Childhood, a website that allows parents to monitor their baby's development from birth to three years. Developing Childhood enables parents to pick up on any developmental delays in real time, and provides stimulation activities to enhance any problem developmental areas. The NDTP online program is based on the Developing Childhood backend infrastructure. You can see how Developing Childhood works by going to the website.
