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.
