Course Description:

Enhance therapy outcomes in your pediatric clients, birth through adolescence, with neuro-motor impairments and issues with alignment utilizing taping and problem solving based on NDT principles presented in this course. Unlike many taping courses this course introduces you to a variety of materials that can be used to achieve improved postural alignment and facilitate muscle activation for enhanced performance. We will explore possible underlying causes for the malalignments and discuss the possible long term ramifications. Research has shown that taping alone is not sufficient to sustain change achieved over time and needs to be combined with practice repetition in the new alignment. You will practice with several different materials on the other course participants to achieve specific objec­tives. Examples of intervention with children utilizing taping procedures will reinforce learning for clinical applications. Course includes videotapes and case studies.

Course Objectives:

  • Provide the therapist with appropriate taping and facili­tation activities for the treatment/management of posture and movement problems using current theory and basic principles of these therapeutic techniques
  • Develop an understanding of the underlying theory and basic principles of using taping for the treatment/ management of posture and movement problems in children
  • Improve posture and movement of pediatric clients by learning techniques that utilize at least 3 different materials for the upper extremities, lower extremities and trunk
  • Gain an understanding of treatment within the NDT framework and how it applies to improved posture
  • Determine when to use taping as part of the overall treatment plan
