    This article shows the school achievement results in reading and writing of a female pupil in primary school with adapted programme and lower educational standa rds. Cerebral palsy and impa ired mental development, manifests various mobility and academic deficits. Case st udy shows how individual therapies (neurophysiotherapy, based on the concept of Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT), and hipotherapy) influence reading and writing performance in a child with special needs. The effects of a direct therapeutic treatment are reflected in results achieved at individual tasks. The aim of the study was to establish the correlation between a therapy type and its effects on the task performance. To demonstrate the effects of a therapy type on the task performance, the statistical method of chi - square test was used. The results of four observations showed that NDT has a significant effect on completion time in a text writing task. The most significant effect on the reading performance was demonstrated by the NDT before class.
