Contemporary Thoughts on Treating the Child with Hypotonia - session 2 is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from Dec 06 - 07, 2019 at Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, United States of America. Course Description: This two-day workshop focuses on using the NDT Practice Model in treating the child with hypotonia, concentrating on interventions to improve control and alignment of the trunk, pelvis, lower extremity, shoulder girdle, and upper extremity. Specific strategies to improve motor control in this population will be presented. Treatment strategies based on the common impairments of the sensorimotor system in this population will be demonstrated using videotapes, case studies and practice labs. Participants will practice strategies to improve functional motor performance of the child with hypotonia. This course applies to pediatric OT/OTAs and PT/PTAs working in school-based practice, outpatient clinics, hospital-based settings and will address children with down’s syndrome, ASD, CP, genetic disorders, sensory processing disorders, etc. At the end of the course, participants will be able to: • Discuss the common impairments seen in children with hypotonia. • Analyze movement patterns of the hypotonic child. • Practice a variety of facilitation techniques for improving alignment, base of support and control of weight shift • Utilize treatment strategies practiced in lab to improve alignment and control for the trunk, pelvis, lower extremity, shoulder, and upper extremity. • Identify the role SMART goals in treatment planning for the child with hypotonia. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Sensory Integration Intensive is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from May 14 - 17, 2020 at P G Chambers School, Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, United States of America. CEU Details: This course meets the criteria for 27 contact hours (2.7 CEU’s). This course meets the approval for Type 2 CEUs by the TX Board of OT Examiners Course Description: This intensive, hands on evidence-based four-day course addresses sensory integrative dysfunction across all ages in those with Autism spectrum, developmental and learning disorders. Participants will leave armed with new direct treatment strategies, as well as contextual interventions to assess and treat across five interdependent systems: motor, sensory, emotional-relational, communication and cognitive problem solving. Participants will learn to treat the root deficit systems instead of isolated deficit behaviors. This effective approach helps patients to show spontaneity and self-motivation to seek out increasingly positive interactions. The focus will be on tools to enhance participation by improving body awareness, postural stability/security, coordinative skill, motor planning, interest and skill with interpersonal communication, organization, and abstract reasoning for learning. Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Identify and access efficacy research to justify diagnosis and treatment of SPD. • Design contextual and direct intervention strategies that enable praxis and academics (in- cluding handwriting,visual-spatial thinking, arithmetic, spelling, memorization and abstract problem-solving). • Design interventions that address developmental deficits across the five interdependent development systems. • Assess and document an individuals specific deficit area and establish goals and priorities for treatment. • Integrate interventions to establish basic attachment relationships and sensory pleasure. • Develop interventions skills in ball work for SI, muscle tone and postural development.
