Graduates in Childhood Neuro and Psycomotricity are healthcare professionals who, in collaboration with multi-professional teams of child neuropsychiatrists and the other branches of paediatrics, carry out preventive, therapeutic and rehabilitative procedures relating to neuropsychiatric conditions in children, in the areas of neuro-psychomotility, neuropsychology and developmental psychopathology.

On the basis of the relevant diagnoses and medical prescriptions and within their sphere of competence, graduates adapt therapeutic procedures on the basis of the specific characteristics of the infant or adolescent being treated, using versatile clinical pictures which develop over time in line with emerging functions.

As part of a multi-professional team, they identify and draw up a preventive, care and rehabilitative programme geared at meeting the health requirements of children with developmental disabilities. They implement curative and rehabilitative procedures for perceptive, motor and neurocognitive disorders, and symbolisation and interaction-related disorders that the child has suffered from birth.  They also carry out procedures directed at the integration of individuals suffering from disabilities and neuro-psychomotor and cognitive handicaps.

As part of a multi-professional team, graduates collaborate with school personnel to implement preventive and functional diagnosis procedures and the dynamic functional strategy of the educational programme selected.

Graduates:

  • perform curative treatments for neuro-psychomotor, psychomotor and neuropsychological disabilities in infants and adolescents, using specific treatments targeted at the age range and individual stage of development in question;
  • implement procedures to evaluate the interrelation between affective, cognitive and motor functions for each individual neurological, neuropsychological and psychopathologic disorder in childhood and adolescence;
  • identify the need and produce a diagnostic and curative report that includes somatic representation and corporeal experience, general functional ability and object relations;
  • draw up and produce a curative programme which employs neuro-motor models and projects as mental acts and cognitive and metacognitive instruments.

They also:

  • use corporeal dynamics as a combination of mental functions and interpersonal relations;
  • assess the use of prostheses and aids in relation to the neuro-psychological benefit and psychopathological risk involved;
  • assist in the functional rehabilitation process for all acute and chronic pathologies of childhood and adolescence;
  • document the compatibility of the rehabilitation methodology employed and the functional recovery goals and the specific characteristics of pathologies which change over time;
  • carry out study, didactic, specific applied research and professional consulting activities;
  • contribute to the training of support staff, and assist directly in the continuous updating of their professional profile. 

Child and adolescent neuro and psychomotor therapists can take up positions within the National and Regional Health Service, in a freelance or employed capacity. They can also enter roles in public and private Scientific Recovery and Treatment Institutes, as well as in accredited private facilities, clinics and rehabilitation centres, state education facilities or local authorities.
