Description:
This lab-based course teaches practitioners to assess toe walking through a holistic view of the child, including biomechanics and sensory processing, to develop a systematic approach to devise an effective treatment plan. This course will change how you think about and treat children with equinus gait. This information is applicable to therapists in school-based, clinical, home, and hospital settings.

This course will teach clinicians to develop interventions based on etiologies to produce successful long term outcomes. Through an organized evaluation procedure, specific data will be used to direct the clinician to potential etiologies. Causes and appropriate intervention strategies are identified in order to utilize a systematic approach to developing an effective treatment plan. This course challenges the clinician to ask the correct questions in order to form a systematic approach to treating the child who “toe walks.” As requested by previous participants.

Cours Objectives:
• Identify specific etiologies relevant to pediatric equinus gait.
• Discuss etiology-specific & age-appropriate assessment & management strategies for this population.
• Apply effective examination, evaluation, intervention and treatment strategies to toe walking in the pediatric population.
• Design an effective & individualized treatment plan for the pediatric patient.
• Explain the future consequences of incorrect intervention.
