DESCRIPTION:
Therapists who work with children experiencing neurological challenges will benefit from this intense 3-day In-Person learning experience that is a hybrid in its delivery. This course is designed to support NDT practitioners to the highest level, combining lectures, labs, video presentations, hands-on demonstrations, and practicums with children. The focus of the content will be on the development of upper extremity use, grasp, and manipulation as it connects to the trunk and lower extremities in daily function. 

The participants’ individual learning experiences and outcomes are paramount; this is a chance to deepen your practice with the children you serve at both the technical and interpersonal level.

This advanced workshop is for C/NDT therapists seeking advanced clinical skills. This advanced course is designed for either: 

Physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists who work with individuals’ post-stroke and/or brain injury 
or 
Physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists who work with children with cerebral palsy or other neuromuscular disorders 


OBJECTIVES:  Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  1. Evaluate typical motions of the upper extremity. 
  2. Observe, analyze, and evaluate effective and ineffective posture and movement of the head, neck and trunk as they impact a client’s functional abilities/limitations in relation to upper extremity function. 
  3. Analyze atypical movement patterns throughout the body and determine impairments that interfere with upper extremity function. 
  4. Construct effective treatment strategies that address primary impairments interfering with efficient use of the upper extremity during functional activities. 
  5. Analyze the interaction between oral motor, upper extremity and lower extremity impairments as they specifically impact upper extremity function. 
  6. Design options for handling skills during treatment practicum to optimize the individual’s function and enhance his/her ability to achieve client specific goals.
