Role of Dynamic Surfaces for Promoting Fun & Functional Shifts in Clients with Neuro-Motor challenges Using the NDT Approach (3-day training)

20- 22 April, 2020 at HNRC, Estonia

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

Course Description:
This introductory to intermediate level course is designed for PT’s, OT’s, and SLP’s who work with or desire to work with children with neuromuscular challenges. Using task analysis, you will learn how to efficiently and effectively design a treatment session towards a functional goal with special consideration to using dynamic surfaces. Emphasis will be placed on using dynamic surfaces within the treatment environment to facilitate core strength, constrain the inefficient movement patterns, and provide practice and repetition of the desired movements within the treatment session. Lecture, video clips, assessment & treatment demonstrations, discussion, group problem-solving, and experiential learning will be utilized to embed this new knowledge into the participants practice. Pre-reading will reinforce the use of the ICF model in the planning and execution of treatment. This is a “must attend” course to become more creative, effective, and efficient in your clinical practice.

Total contact hours: 19 hours

Objectives:
By the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
– Identify the essential postural, neuromuscular, musculoskeletal and sensory/perceptual elements necessary to gain postural control for a child’s functional goal.
– Recognize and follow through observation, the elements of an assessment of a child and planning a treatment session with dynamic surfaces using task analysis and problem solving towards a functional goal.
– Identify a variety of dynamic surfaces useful in the treatment of children, identifying the advantages and challenges, how to use the surface, when in treatment to use it, and how it effects the child’s movement repertoire.
– Prioritize treatment strategies towards an effective and efficient sequence for a functional outcome.
– Use dynamic surfaces to demonstrate a minimum of 10 treatment interventions for gaining proximal stability, improving functional use of the head and limbs, and increasing mobility.
