Description:
This course is designed to present the most recent empirical evidence regarding 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 is 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 Level: Intermediate

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 rationale for early gait training
• Analyze varying environments in relation to affordances for motor behavior
