DESCRIPTION

This three-day introductory to intermediate level course will combine lecture, laboratory, and video presentations. Content will focus on core strength and postural control as the foundation for function of the upper and lower extremities (movement, sensation, and desire), characteristics of the lower extremities (LEs) for gait and balance skills, characteristics of upper extremities (UEs) in transitions, contact, grasp, and support during gait. Foundational information will be contrasted with the challenges demonstrated in children with developmental, and neuromotor difficulties. Observational skill for assessment, setting priorities for intervention, and intervention strategies will be presented for manipulation, gait, stairs, climbing, and higher level skills and activities. Emphasis will be placed on experiential learning through movement lab practice with adult partners and observation of and discussion after treatment demonstrations.
