300 Neonatal Therapists Now Certified in Special Program Neonatal Therapy Certification Program Growing and Therapists Hail from All Around the Globe

The number of neonatal therapists is on the rise globally, and professionals in this specialized field now can earn the designation of Certified Neonatal Therapist (CNT). It highlights specialized professionals who have achieved standards of excellence in neonatal therapy, as evaluated and recognized by the Neonatal Therapy National Certification Board (NTNCB). Today, more than 300 professionals internationally are CNTs; they hail from the U.S. -- including Puerto Rico and 42 states -- Canada, the U.K., and Qatar. The CNT designation first became available only two years ago.

Why are more people joining the ranks of neonatal therapists? Today there is greater understanding about the significant amount of brain development that occurs during the neonatal period, as well as how different environmental and developmental interventions can positively influence high-risk infants’ futures. The particular designation of CNT is paramount for employers. The certification provides a metric for employers seeking to make staffing decisions based on rigorous qualifications that aim to ensure the best care for the most fragile and vulnerable infants in the highly specialized field of neonatal therapy.

Premature and other infants admitted to hospitals’ neonatal intensive care units (NICU) can have congenital, neurological, and other health conditions that put them at high risk of developmental challenges. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology services that start shortly after birth in the NICU can improve outcomes and maximize quality of life. However, specialized skills and knowledge are essential for therapists who work with this vulnerable population. Neonatal therapy certification provides a pathway for health-care professionals and parents to ensure that those providing therapy to high-risk infants have the highest caliber of neonatal expertise.
