Conference Summary

The Pediatric Brain: Functional Neuroanatomy, The Visual-Vestibular System and Treatment Applications - Session 2 is organized by Education Resources, Inc (ERI) and will be held during Mar 16 - 17, 2018 at Exceptional Children's Center, Springfield, Virginia, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14 contact hours.

Course Description :

This course will provide physical and occupational therapists with a deeper understanding of the complex multi-system involvement of the brain in reflex integration, movement, learning, and daily functioning. The instructor will use innovative and multi-sensory approaches to help participants relate the information to their everyday practice. The first day of the course will focus on the functional aspects of Neuroanatomy. The second day will focus on the interaction between the vestibular-visual systems. The visual system is often overlooked by both occupational and physical therapists. It has an enormous impact on the precise functioning of the vestibular system and dysfunction can result in poor performance across all areas of a child's function. The instructor strives to provide therapists with a new perspective to demonstrate the importance of addressing visual dysfunction within their vestibular treatment. Participants will review real-life cases through a video to enhance understanding of the material. At the end of this two-day course, therapists will have a proficient functional knowledge of neuroanatomy and the visual-vestibular systems in the dysfunctional pediatric population, and immediately utilize this knowledge to augment their current practice.

Course Objectives :

• Understand impact of poor reflex integration and assess reflex maturation in the pediatric population.
• Describe the functions of the cerebellum and basal ganglia and their importance in learning development, and dysfunction.
• Discuss the importance of the vestibular-visual systems and their involvement in dysfunction in the pediatric population.
• Utilize current research to enhance practice.
• Integrate the concepts discussed and apply them to client treatment.

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