Integrating NDT, SI and Motor Learning Perspectives in Pediatrics...Treating for Measurable Outcomes

Course Description:

The continuing education hours obtained at this course qualify toward NDTA re-certification.

Are the goals you are setting for the children you treat, realistic? Is the treatment approach the most effective to achieve the outcome you want? This workshop will enhance critical thinking skills and hands-on skills to enable therapists to use a systematic approach to treating children with developmental challenges. Focus will be on problem solving to gain function for children with motor control, sensory processing and behavioral compromise. The unique approach will help therapists set realistic measurable goals, set priorities and determine frequency of treatment and exit criteria.

Participants will be able to:
1. Discuss developmental processes in the context of motor learning, neurodevelopmental treatment, and sensory integration theories of intervention.
2. Use critical thinking skills to apply current concepts of motor learning, NDT and SI to achieve functional outcomes
3. Identify behaviors indicating motor and sensory difficulties in children that compromise function through observation.
4. Use a new systematic approach to plan and execute treatment in a clinic, home, and school environment.
5. Use a minimum of five new intervention techniques.

What others are saying:

This was my 3rd course Lezlie taught. All different - all wonderful! She has such a great understanding of what needs to be done for children to succeed!" - Paula, PT

I came to this course with a strong background in SI. I am leaving this course with a greater understanding of NDT and motor learning principles and treatment and how to integrate it into thinking about the appropriate approach for treatment based on the functional outcome I am trying to facilitate. I feel that I have a better understanding of how to clinically observe a child with a dynamic systems approach, and how to apply the correct treatment based on the deficit." - Shanna, OTR

I enjoyed this course and learned more about the similarities of NDT and SI and good problem solving strategies. Lezlie is great and I would enjoy taking other courses she teaches." - Katy, OTR

"Lezlie is a great presenter and really keeps you interested in the material. Great ideas to take back with us to use in our work environments!"-Katie, PTA

"Lezlie is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced clinician and teacher. She was able to convey the information clearly with lots of opportunities for hands on practice and audiovisual supports for the topics. She was relaxed and informal in her delivery making listening and participation easy. Will definitely be using the things this course has taught me to work with and hopefully make a difference with the kids I treat." - Laura, PT

"Lezlie Adler is a wealth of knowledge regarding SI and NDT in the pediatric population and opened my eyes to new techniques for handling that will forever change my therapeutic practice and have made me a stronger therapist. Thank you!"-Rebecca, OTR/L
