Enhance therapy outcomes in your pediatric clients, birth through adolescence, with neuro-motor impairments and issues with alignment utilizing taping and problem solving based on NDT principles presented in this course. Unlike many taping courses this course introduces you to a variety of materials that can be used to achieve improved postural alignment and facilitate muscle activation for enhanced performance. We will explore possible underlying causes for the malalignments and discuss the possible long term ramifications. Research has shown that taping alone is not sufficient to sustain change achieved over time and needs to be combined with practice repetition in the new alignment. You will practice with several different materials on the other course participants to achieve specific objectives. Examples of intervention with children utilizing taping procedures will reinforce learning for clinical applications. Course includes videotapes and case studies.

The cost of taping materials are included in the seminar tuition.
