Course Description :
This course is designed for physical, occupational, speech therapists, and assistants treating children with neurological deficits who are acquiring gait, desire to have vertical mobility such as walking, or who currently function in vertical.

Current philosophy and principles of the Neuro-Developmental Treatment approach will be presented as it relates to treatment of gait and acquisition of skills in vertical. Movement labs will be used to facilitate one another through movement transitions and to learn handling techniques for the treatment of gait and functional tasks typically done in vertical.
