KOOLITUST EI TOIMU! Function in Pediatrics: Liberating the Limbs and Mouth with a Strong Core (3-day training)

KOOLITUST EI TOIMU! 16- 18 April, 2020 at HNRC, Estonia

Jane L. Styer-Acevedo, PT, DPT, C/NDT

Course Description:
Why are some people so fluid in performing tasks while others require effort for the same tasks? What makes the difference between reaching forward and reaching overhead? Or short steps instead of long steps when walking? Why do some people lean on the sink to brush their teeth while others are walking around or dancing? And how do these questions apply to people with neurological challenges? Having a strong trunk and hips makes the difference between effortful movement or function and increased smoothness and fluidity during functional tasks. In this course you will learn how to use task analysis to identify areas of need for children with neurological challenge while completing an identified task of choice. Lecture, movement lab, group analysis and discussion, treatment demonstration, and video clips will be used in this introductory to intermediate level course to promote the most efficient and effective treatment session to enable clients to make a functional shift in their lives. Physical, occupational, and speech therapists will learn how to enable their clients to make this functional shift. If you’ve ever wondered why your clients do not make the progress you would like, this course is a “must attend” for you.

Total contact hours: 19 hours

Objectives:
By the end of this course, the participant will learn:
– To apply motor control theories to the NDTA Contemporary Practice ModelTM to the assessment and treatment of children with neuromuscular challenge.
– To categorize the assessment and treatment of children into elements of the International Classification of Function (ICF) Model.
– To identify the essential postural, neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, and sensory/perceptual elements necessary to gain postural control for an identified functional goal for a client.
– To use task analysis of a functional task/goal to identify the critical components of the task.
– To compare and contrast movement strategies of typical movement to the less efficient strategies used by clients with neuromuscular and sensory/perceptual challenges.
– To distinguish between missing components, compensatory components, and atypical components in movement as observed during assessment and treatment demonstrations and in video clips.
– To prioritize treatment strategies towards an effective and efficient sequence for a functional goal.
– A minimum of 5 treatment interventions for gaining proximal stability.
– A minimum of 5 treatment interventions to improve the dynamic stability of the shoulder complex.
– A minimum of 5 treatment interventions to improve function in vertical
