(ERI) and will be held from Nov 08 - 09, 2019 at RiverKids Pediatric Home Health, Pearland, Texas, United States of America. Audience: This workshop focuses on myofascial releases as they apply to soft tissue elongation and NDT facilitation. This material is useful for Physical and Occupational Therapists and Assistants working with either the adult or pediatric populations Credits: • This course meets the criteria for 13.5 contact hours (1.35 CEUs). Approved sponsor by the State of IL Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for Physical Therapy. TX Physical Therapy Association accredited provider.

When atypical posture and movement alter the natural and efficient alignment of the skeleton, the fascial system adapts by contracting and bonding. The primary focus of this workshop will be on the hands on treatment, using MFR addressing the musculoskeletal system that is needed prior to facilitation of movement. As therapists we can improve our clinical decision making skills by forming and testing hypotheses regarding critical impairments when treating individuals diagnosed with multiple system impairments such as cerebral palsy, stroke, congenital hypotonicity, and other neuromotor impairments. Discussion on the creation and execution of therapeutic intervention and clinical decision making to assure success will be incorporated. A combination of didactic, and laboratory learning experiences will emphasize the integration of MFR and the NDT framework as the foundation for intervention when treating either pediatric or adult individuals with central nervous system dysfunction. This workshop focuses on the basic myofascial releases as it applies to soft tissue elongation and NDT facilitation. This material is useful for Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists and Assistants working with either the adult or pediatric populations. At the end of this course participants will be able to: • Describe the function of the fascial system. • Identify critical fascial restrictions interfering with motor function related to functional outcomes. • Select MFR techniques for neurological impairment(s) and problem solve when to use which technique(s) and why. • MFR techniques to elongate muscle groups during movement. • Apply treatment NDT techniques and strategies to increase mobility and enhance stability via facilitation of movement. • Integrate handling strategies learned in lab into daily practice.

Description: Do you have a caseload full of children who refuse to eat because of sensory challenges, food sensitivities, behaviors, or even no apparent reason? This course addresses the growing problem of food refusals and nutritional deficiencies from a revolutionary new perspective and focuses on self-regulation, socio-cultural, and emotional perspectives while incorporating conventional nutrition, oral-motor skills, sensory processing and behavioral techniques. Susan’s highly successful, integrative approach integrates body, mind and spirit and uses play, the primary occupation of childhood, as a focal point to improve outcomes and plot a course to happier and healthier mealtimes. The seminar format involves extensive case problem solving and participants will apply the provided tools to their own clients. These tools include: structured observations of play and mealtime behaviors; food journals for nutrition, sensory, and food sensitivities; functional, measurable performance objectives aligned with academic goals; and play based mealtime implementation strategies. The participant will be able to: • Discuss commonalities in the development of play, emotional intelligence, and mealtime skills. • Identify common medical conditions associated with food refusals and the research-based evidence that needs to guide mealtime interventions. • Compare and differentiate a child’s current food choices for nutritional value and sensory preference. Generate plans for successfully introducing new and nourishing foods to develop epigentic resilience to disease. • Design therapeutic interventions that motivate and reward expanded food choices and the development of competent eating skills via the gut-brain connection.
