This introductory to intermediate level two-day course will combine lecture, experiential lab, group problem solving, and an assessment and treatment demonstration for Physical, Occupational, & Speech Therapists and Assistants who are currently treating or are interested in treating clients with neuromuscular and sensory/perceptual impairments and dysfunction. Content will focus on core strength and postural control as the foundation for functional skills using the head, neck, and limbs. Foundational information will be contrasted with the challenges demonstrated in clients throughout the lifespan with developmental, neuromuscular, and/or sensory/perceptual difficulties. Emphasis will be placed on common therapeutic strategies used in handling clients of a variety of ages and sizes towards gaining core stability for functional outcomes/goals. This workshop is practical in nature with much of the content including moving one another in lab. It is essential to wear clothes that allow you to move freely and to feel or visualize another participant’s joints and movement. This is a workshop “not to be missed” if you’ve ever wondered why fluidity of movement is easier for some individuals and more challenging for others and why some children achieve higher levels of activity and participation.
