The Australian Bobath Training Association (ABTA) has been formed to promote the teaching of the Bobath Concept in adult neurological rehabilitation.
It is our mission to provide exciting, current Bobath courses that are very applicable to the clinical setting.
We have been providing Bobath courses in Australia and neighbouring countries since 2000. It is our mission to provide exciting, current Bobath courses that are very applicable to the clinical setting.
ABTA is preparing to return to face to face teaching in 2021, and is currently liaising with venues to plan courses for 2021, in line with DHHS COVID guidelines.
In keeping with these guidelines there will be the following modifications to our courses:
These modifications are also in line with the APA guidelines for face to face courses, and we will be updating the guidelines regularly to reflect the most current health recommendations.
Given the practical nature of our courses, we cannot maintain 1.5m distancing during the practical component of the course (~70% of course is practically based).
As soon as courses are confirmed, they will be listed on our Upcoming Courses page. Please contact the listed course convener for any queries (including registration) regarding a specific course.
You can find more useful links and Bobath resources on our Resources page.
There are five qualified Bobath tutors and 6 tutor trainees in the group currently. A brief CV of each member is available in the About Us section.
