Pediatric NDT Intensive Handling Techniques is organized by Motivations Inc. nad will be held from Sep 27 - 28, 2019 at All for Kids Pediatric Therapy Clinic, Anchorage, Alaska, United States of America. Audience: Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Assistants, and Speech Language Pathologists CEU Credits: 15 hours or .15 or 15 CEUs Course Summary: As clinicians treating individuals with central nervous system dysfunction, such as cerebral palsy, congenital hypotonia and other multi-system impairments, we can make advances in our clinical decision making skills by establishing hypotheses regarding the critical impairments that we observe in our assessments and be more precise in our treatment sessions. This 2-day, hands-on lab intensive seminar is designed to further enhance the ability to treat individual’s with CNS dysfunction. We will briefly review the current Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach principles and rationales that support our treatment planning and the strategies used within a treatment session. Development of your handling skills will be emphasized as a way to influence multi-system and single system impairments related to the clients’s functional outcomes. Development of specific handling skills related to in-effective posture and movement behaviors observed in the neurologically challenged client will be the primary focus of this seminar. Discussion of therapeutic intervention and the clinical decision-making process will be discussed. A combination of didactic, video examples, laboratory learning experiences and patient demonstration will ensure the integration of NDT as a foundation for intervention. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • For a given individual with a neurological impairment, demonstrate the ability to use graded sensory input to influence posture and movement • After identifying the relationship between functional limitations, multi-system impairments, and single system impairments, prioritize 3 essential elements of intervention. • For a given neurological impairment, justify a treatment strategy using at least 3 interventions discussed in this course. • For a given neurological impairment, demonstrate the ability to use sustained and intermittent touch of varying pressures with movement, joint compression, and traction. • Identify at least 3 treatment strategies/techniques that effectively address alignment, base of support, muscle activation and functional outcomes in the client with a neurological impairment.
