Pediatric patients are different from adult patients and can pose many challenges. This specialized hands-on two-day course will be a valuable learning opportunity for a pediatric therapist who is challenged by the orthopedic issues that arise when treating musculoskeletal conditions and for hand therapists who treat adults and are challenged when faced with a pediatric patient. Participants will learn strategies to successfully meet these challenges and understand approaches for evaluating, treating, and providing orthoses (splints) and home programs for the pediatric patient with musculoskeletal conditions.

Course includes review of:
• Normal hand skill development from birth to 5 years
• Most common pediatric outcomes measures and evaluation tools for orthopedic conditions
• Developmental and functional issues for children with musculoskeletal conditions
• Identification of specific orthotic intervention for children with musculoskeletal conditions
• Pre-surgical and post-surgical intervention strategies for commonly treated pediatric musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and rheumatologic conditions.
• Overview of orthotic intervention principles and techniques specifically for pediatric patients
• Decision making skills for therapy intervention, home program and orthotic intervention
• Methods to encourage cooperation during fabrication with pediatric patients
• Methods to enhance compliance with use of the orthoses with pediatric patients
• Review of available prefabricated orthoses for pediatric patients

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion, participant will be able to::
• Identify 3 unique aspects of hand therapy for pediatric patients with musculoskeletal conditions.
• Identify the appropriate age norms for 3 specific developmental skills below the age of 5 years that affect hand skill development
• List 3 pediatric evaluation tools that are standardized for use on pediatric patients with upper extremity conditions.
• Choose 2 treatment techniques that would be appropriate to utilize after surgery for a pediatric patient with one of the following conditions: brachial plexus palsy, upper extremity trauma, congenital hand conditions, neuromuscular disorders, and rheumatologic conditions
• Identify 3 ways to improve compliance and wear time with orthotic intervention for a pediatric patient with musculoskeletal conditions
• Compare two differences in treatment of flexor tendon repair of the hand for pediatric patients vs. adult patients.
• Adapt 3 common items found in the home or clinic into treatment or home program ideas for improving motion or function of the upper extremity
• Create 9 orthoses, from beginning of the design process to the finalization of the orthotic fabrication, correctly utilizing all of the orthotic mechanical principles.
• Critique each fabricated orthosis for correct fit by utilizing 3 factors: freedom of distal joints, 3 points of pressure, appropriate application of straps.
• Propose 3 appropriate therapy goals and treatment strategies for the pediatric patient with neuromuscular condition described in the scenario.
