Conference Brochure

Children's Brains, Neuroplasticity and Pediatric Intervention: What's the Evidence? - Session 1 is organized by Education Resources, Inc (ERI) and will be held during Apr 07 - 08, 2018 at Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center, Denver, Colorado, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is designed primarily for Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Occupational Therapists, and Occupational Therapist Assistants, but may also be of interest to speech clinicians and other health-care and education professionals. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16.8 contact hours.

Course Description :
This course is designed to present the most recent empirical evidence regarding the efficacy of specific therapy-related interventions. Emphasis will be on strategies for children with cerebral palsy and other neurologic-based diagnoses. Videotapes of treatment sessions will be used to illustrate major points and to present longitudinal case studies. Recent information on neuroplasticity and motor learning principles as related to the developing child are included and implications for the most effective clinical interventions are suggested. Treatment strategies based on current knowledge of neuroplasticity, such as constraint-induced therapy, mirror therapy, and treadmill training, are emphasized. The information presented should be immediately applicable to the organization of clinical treatment sessions and home, school, and community-based programs for children with a variety of developmental disabilities. Age and Patient Population: Principles discussed in the course are applicable to children of all ages as well as adults. Treatment strategies presented are designed for the pediatric population.

Course Objectives :
Following this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe critical elements that support brain plasticity
• Summarize major processes in normal brain development
• Link developmental disabilities with areas of impaired brain function
• Compare generalized intervention strategies to specific function-based activities
• Apply principles of motor learning to treatment sessions
• Compare differing viewpoints on the role of muscle tone in motor control
• Discuss critical periods for CNS sensory system development in children
• Review research regarding perceptual-motor development in typically developing children
• Discuss the rationale for early gait training
• Analyze varying environments in relation to affordances for motor behavior

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
