NBCOT Professional Development Provider-21 PDUs. 12 hours of this course qualify toward the 20 hours requirement for NDTA re-certification Description: Maximize time while treating infants and toddlers to incorporate early ambulation into natural routines and environments. Intensive labs will guide participants on how to effectively analyze and improve gait patterns. How do you maximize your time and target gait in your interventions with infants and toddlers? This course will focus on pre and early ambulation in a population that is predisposed to rapid and dramatic changes: the birth to three population. We will examine typical and atypical ambulation development in infants/toddlers and determine how best to incorporate therapeutic activities into their natural environment and routines. The impact of biomechanics, the neuromuscular system, the sensory system, orthotics, and assistive equipment will be integrated as participants learn to build intervention strategies to address ambulation early and effectively in infants and toddlers with diagnoses such as CP, developmental delay, prematurity, and Down Syndrome. Objectives: Upon completion of course, participants will be able to: • Recognize and mediate adverse influences of the biomechanical, neuromuscular, and other body systems (respiratory, visual, sensory, GI, etc) on the development of ambulation in infants and toddlers. • Develop and use pre-ambulation interventions to build the capacity for ambulation and teach families/caregivers to incorporate into the child’s daily routine. • Examine evidence-based intervention supports such as handling, treadmill, taping, and dynamic garments. • Compare benefits to disadvantages of orthotic use by implementing current evidence in selecting and progressing orthotics to enhance functional early ambulation and preserve the quality of later ambulation.
