The target audience for this medical event is PTs, OTs, SLPs, and Assistants. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 13.00 Credits. Course Description : This workshop will focus on play as a vehicle for learning for children with developmental challenges. Current information on Neuro Developmental Treatment and Sensory Integration will provide the foundation for analyzing and applying play to assessment and intervention with children of all ages to attain functional skills. Conference Objectives are : • Create developmentally appropriate play activities for children with neuro-motor, (oral motor, fine motor and gross motor) sensory, and developmental challenges as a preparation for functional tasks. • Analyze the essential elements of a functional skill, and identify playful interventions to facilitate specific goals in the areas of mobility, daily living skills, tool usage and oral motor function and respiration. • Identify and apply critical elements in the theoretical frameworks of NDT, SI, and Motor Learning that facilitate play and ultimately the acquisition of a functional skill in children. • Consider different methods for teaching, managing the environment, selecting equipment, and handling the child that will be playful and optimize function.
