Occupational Therapy Process: Assessment, Intervention. • The assignment of AOTA CEUs does not imply endorsement of specific course content, products or clinical procedures by AOTA. • NBCOT professional development provider - 14 PDUs Description: This course is designed to present the most recent empirical evidence regarding efficacy of specific therapy-related interventions. Emphasis will be on strategies for children with cerebral palsy and other neurologic-based diagnoses. Videotapes of treatment sessions will be used to illustrate major points and to present longitudinal case studies. Recent information on neuroplasticity and motor learning principles as related to the developing child is included and implications for the most effective clinical interventions are suggested. Treatment strategies based on current knowledge of neuroplasticity, such as constraint-induced therapy, mirror therapy and treadmill training, are emphasized. The information presented should be immediately applicable to the organization of clinical treatment sessions and home, school, and community-based programs for children with a variety of developmental disabilities. Age and Patient Population: Principles discussed in the course are applicable to children of all ages as well as adults. Treatment strategies presented are designed for the pediatric population. Course Level: Intermediate Course Objectives: Following this course, participants will be able to: • Describe critical elements that support brain plasticity • Summarize major processes in normal brain development • Link developmental disabilities with areas of impaired brain function • Compare generalized intervention strategies to specific function-based activities • Apply principles of motor learning to treatment sessions • Compare differing viewpoints on the role of muscle tone in motor control • Discuss critical periods for CNS sensory system development in children • Review research regarding perceptual-motor development in typically developing children • Discuss rationale for early gait training • Analyze varying environments in relation to affordances for motor behavior

ICU and Acute Care: From Early Mobilization to Discharge Decisions is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from Aug 01 - 02, 2020 at ProMedica Flower Hospital, Sylvania, Ohio, United States of America. CEU Details: • This course meets the criteria for 13.5 contact hours (1.35 CEU's). • Approved provider of continuing education by the American Occupational Therapy Association #3043, for 13.5 contact hours - Intermediate Level Occupational Therapy Process: assessment, intervention. • The assignment of AOTA CEU's does not imply endorsement of specific course content, products or clinical procedures by AOTA. • NBCOT professional development provider-13.5 PDU's. Description: The focus of this course will be on critical decision making through case analysis and hands-on learning to determine medical stability and exercise tolerance in complex patients suffering from the common iatrogenic effects of the hospital. This course will improve your interpretation of vital signs, line management, assessment skills, and effective intervention strategies. This course will cover the multisystem adverse effects of critical illness and the impact the sequelae have on the rehabilitation process. The current philosophy is for early mobilization to decrease the rate of functional deficits and disability. In this medical model the therapist needs to have a sharp set of skills in assessment and optimal interventions given the activity tolerance of the patient. This course will discuss the interpretation of vital signs beyond the basics and system review as it relates to critical illness. The participants will gain a clinical decision framework to determine medical stability and exercise tolerance that will improve the exercise prescription of patients recovering from critical illness. This course will also focus on understanding dyspnea and fatigue which are two common barriers to activity tolerance. The participants will learn how to examine chest wall mechanics, breathing pattern, cough effectiveness and incorporate interventions to improve function. This course will explore the evidence for advanced intervention for patients on advanced medical support devices and who are suffering from the common iatrogenic effects of hospitalization. Participants will be engaged in a case study to discuss integration of clinical information and problem solving for a successful patient encounter. Objectives: Participants will be able to: • Integrate the medical and environmental of the ICU to promote an effective therapy session. • Apply current literature and trends to progress functional recovery for patients that suffer critical illness. • Apply basic exercise physiology principles to prescribe an effective exercise prescription • Implement an integrative rehabilitation plan to address pulmonary dysfunction. • Analyze the complexity of critical illness via a case scenario to develop an evaluation and intervention approach to provide comprehensive care.
Self Regulation and Mealtimes: An Integrative Approach to Difficult Feeding Challenges (Oct 02 - 03, 2020)
Oct 02 - 03, 2020 | Contact Hours 15.60 | USD $435 | Sylvania, Ohio
Self Regulation and Mealtimes: An Integrative Approach to Difficult Feeding Challenges is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from Oct 02 - 03, 2020 at ProMedica Flower Hospital, Sylvania, Ohio, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is designed for OTs, OTAs, PTs, PTAs, SLPs, Registered Dieticians, and Special Educators. Eating affects the entire lifespan and problems occur at all ages. While we often see food refusals and other maladaptive eating behaviors in autism spectrum disorders, disordered eating and food refusals occur frequently with ADHD, developmental delays, and even with typically developing children. Techniques apply to EI, school, clinic, and home settings with children from infancy to teens. Those new to feeding and even more experienced practitioners will learn from the course Accreditation: • This course meets the criteria for 13 contact hours (1.3 CEUs). Application has been made to the MD and NJ Boards of Physical Therapy Examiners, and to the OH Physical Therapy Association. The DC, DE, PA and VA Boards of Physical Therapy recognize other state’s approvals. • TX Physical Therapy Association accredited provider. Approved provider by the NY State Board of Physical Therapy for 15.6 contact hours. • This course is offered for up to 1.3 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, Professional area). • Approved provider of continuing education by the American Occupational Therapy Association #3043, for 13 contact hours Intermediate Level Occupational Therapy Process: assessment, intervention. The assignment of AOTA CEUs does not imply endorsement of specific course content, products or clinical procedures by AOTA. • NBCOT professional development provider-13 PDUs. Approved by the TX Board of OT Examiners. • Dieticians will receive 13 hours. Description: Learn to view eating (a self-regulated occupation) through the lenses of psychoneuroimmunology, which involves multiple gut-brain neurohormonal feedback loops of sensory enjoyment, positive social interactions, and the microbiome. Participants will learn to find “just-right” self-regulation approaches, evaluate developmental readiness, plan sound nutritional food-chains, and use family-focused reduction of mealtime stress to improve feeding dynamics. Objectives • Predict which sensory, movement, and communication activities will most likely enhance self-regulated behaviors for individual children. • Evaluate a child from participant’s caseload for developmental readiness using the Rainbow Kid’s Play Scale, and the Rainbow Kid’s Mealtime Scale. • Construct a food chain that begins with a child’s favorite food and introduces new, more nutritional foods in a stepwise pattern that stays within a child’s comfort level. • Support family-focused mealtimes by following the Satter Division of Responsibility in Feeding model. • Assemble a menu of therapeutic activities (games, cooking, art, music, academics) and objectives that will guide the child toward eating competence and autonomy.
