  • Baby Steps: Building Ambulation Interventions for Infants and Young Children with Posture and Movement Dysfunction

    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 preparation for, and development of, ambulation in the infant and toddler. And determine how best to incorporate 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.

  • Vestibular Rehabilitation for Children

    This 2-day course provides an overview of evidence based practice for vestibular related impairments in children. Didactic content includes a detailed review of the anatomy, physiology and development of the Vestibular System, the epidemiology of vestibular dysfunction in children, diagnostic and clinical testing of vestibular function, and examination and evaluation of, and intervention for, for vestibular related impairments in children with peripheral (i.e. BPVC, hypofunction or loss) or central (i.e. ADHD, DCD, concussion, CP) deficits. Hands-on demonstration and training of examination techniques and intervention are included. Case reviews and discussion are used to facilitate application of presented materials.

  • Electrical Stimulation: Enhancing Pediatric Outcomes

    Learn to appropriately select parameters for using TENS and FES to enhance treatment protocols specifically for the pediatric population.

    Specialty applications, which reference the differences between Neurologic and Orthopedic diagnoses will be reviewed.  Specific protocols for shoulder subluxation, rhomboid stabilization, brachial plexus injuries, and facial paralysis will be reviewed and practiced in lab. Review of TENS and FES, including parameter selection for chronic pain, muscle strengthening, and neuromuscular rehabilitation will be discussed. Recent research will be reviewed for electrical modalities, with contraindications specifically referring to Pediatrics. Prior exposure and/or knowledge of modalities & anatomy is helpful to maximize learning experience.
