Abstract

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a Neuromuscular Disorder mainly affecting boys from birth. This disease impacts not only musculoskeletal and respiratory systems, but also emotional well-being, due to its progressive nature, limiting life expectancy. The child and their family therefore need to be at the centre of all plans for effective overall long-term management. Aims were to • To find the different teaching approaches used with parents & school carers. • To find how the physiotherapist adapts these teaching approaches. • To look at the theories of motivation. Physiotherapists need to utilise adaptation skills to the teaching approaches and motivation styles used with each individual. Further research is needed to explore these concepts in the larger general physiotherapy population across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales.
