Treatment of Common Extremity Dysfunction through Mobilization is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Jan 11 - 12, 2020 at ProMedica Flower Hospital, Toledo, Ohio, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 16 continuing education hours. Course Description: There are few classes available where you will learn how to treat so many common extremity dysfunctions with so much success. This is a class that will change how you look at common extremity diagnoses and will help you to start treating differently on Monday morning. The focus of the class is using joint mobilization to normalize the stress on the tissues around a joint; immediately decreasing the stress on the tissues and secondary pain that this creates. This will take your understanding of extremity mobilization far beyond what you learned in school. As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Accurately explain the rationale for performing joint mobilization and its specific physiological effects • Explain and correctly demonstrate grading, oscillation techniques and sustained-hold techniques of joint mobilizations • Accurately identify the joint surface anatomy of each joint discussed in this course. • Accurately explain the application of the joint surface anatomy to the mechanics of each joint discussed in this course • Demonstrate proper extremity mobilization technique, hand placement, and body mechanics during lab scenarios Topics Covered: • Overview of surface structure and its effect on mobilization • Introduction and review of conservative and aggressive mobilization techniques with emphasis on functional application • Introduction and review of dynamic mobilization techniques • The shoulder / scapula • The elbow • The wrist and hand • The hip • The knee • The ankle and foot • Application to specific clinical situations

(2010), Smart but Scattered (Guilford, 2009) and Smart but Scattered Teens (2013, Guilford) uses case examples along with interactive discussion to demonstrate how the executive skills manifest in daily home and school activities. Learn how to assess these skills and take home evidence-based strategies to help children and adolescents overcome executive skills weaknesses. Leave this seminar with a set of tools that includes strategies for task/environmental modifications, skill development through cognitive/behavioral techniques and creation of incentive systems. You will be able to give teachers and parents a means for developing and improving the following: • organization • time management • impulse control • goal-directed persistence • executive skills critical for independent functioning Objectives: • Determine the neurological processes involved with executive skill development in both neurotypical children and those with executive dysfunction, such as ADHD. • Differentiate between a variety of formal and informal executive function assessments. • Develop environmental modifications to support weak executive skills at home and school. • Design student-centered interventions that target problem scenarios associated with executive skills deficits. • Utilize coaching methods that support executive skills development to improve school performance. • Construct effective protocols for teaching specific executive skills, including working memory, cognitive flexibility, and inhibitory control.
