Sensory Systems: The Effect on Postural Control … Understanding and Incorporating Sensory Strategies in NDT Treatment (Oct 26 - 27, 2019)
Oct 26 - 27, 2019 | CEUs 1.50 | USD $495 | Marlton, New Jersey
Sensory Systems: The Effect on Postural Control … Understanding and Incorporating Sensory Strategies in NDT Treatment is organized by Motivations Inc. and will be held from Oct 26 - 27, 2019 at Weisman Children's Hospital and Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, Marlton, New Jersey, United States of America. Target Audience: A course for Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Assistants, and Speech Language Pathologists (Some familiarity with NDT handling is helpful) CEU Credits: This is a 15-hour course equivalent to 1.5 CEUs. Course Summary: Client function and participation can be severely impaired when the sensory systems are not functioning optimally. Children that have neuropsychiatric or neuromuscular impairment may have postural control issues that are compounded by sensory system dysfunction. This intermediate level course using the NDT problem-solving approach will contain lecture, treatment videos and live demonstration treatment to illustrate potential presentation, and subsequent treatment strategies for sensory system dysfunction. This course is for OT’s, PT’s, SLP’s and their assistants that work with children that have delayed development or neuromuscular system impairment. Participants will improve their clinical decision making skills by analyzing the complex inter-relationship of function, multi-system behaviors, and single system integrities when working with children who have posture and movement dysfunction. The importance of understanding the role of the cerebellum, the sensory systems and postural control will be emphasized. The details of blending of the sensory systems and NDT handling strategies will be emphasized. Various video examples and discussion will be utilized to integrate this information. These CEU's can also be used toward NDTA re-certification. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • Identify the significant role(s) of the Cerebellum for analysis of treatment. • Identify and describe sensory system contributions to the posture and movement systems. • Describe 3 specific treatment strategies that address the visual, vestibular & somatosensory systems simultaneously. • Identify the difference between ocular motor impairment and CVI. • Identify 3 specific treatment strategies: vision, vestibular, somatosensory.
