Early Stimulation

At SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, we have created the Early Stimulation Unit to diagnose and address developmental disorders as soon as possible in children under six years of age with cerebral palsy, psychomotor delays, multiple disabilities, autism and ataxia.

We are experts in Bobath therapy, the most widespread and commonly used treatment in Europe that treats cerebral palsy, and one of the few centres in Spain that provides training in it.

We have a specialised programme in cerebral palsy based on medical/surgical treatment of spasticity: medication, botulinum toxin, continuous intrathecal baclofen infusion pumps, etc.

In addition, since 2006, SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital has also had a centre for child development and early care to care for children between 0 and 6 years of age with developmental disorders, or a risk of suffering from them, from the municipalities of Esplugues de Llobregat, Sant Joan Despí and Sant Just Desvern (CDIAP Sant Joan de Déu).
