Hone your clinical decision-making skills to improve outcomes in the pediatric population by utilizing rhythm-based strategies, ocular motor assessments and treatment, reflex integration and SI interventions.
- CEU DETAILS
This course will focus on clinical decision-making for the use of vision, occulomotor and movement strategies to enhance outcomes. Emphasis will be on frameworks used with special populations and analysis of assessment data. Movement-based therapeutic strategies and ocular-motor assessment will be incorporated through case study review for effective and evidence-based treatment planning. Video case analysis will allow attendees to sharpen observational and assessment skills and integrate course material for more complex clinical data-based decision making in order to L.E.A.R.N.
- Learn through integration
- Adjust expectations
- Repeat predictable patterns
- Notice shifts in system
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Develop more refined observational skills for effective treatment planning for the pediatric population.
- Describe evidence-based movement strategies with review of related research and expand ability to L.E.A.R.N.
- Assess and interpret how vision and ocular-motor dysfunction can impact learning and describe at least three strategies to increase visual efficiency.
- Describe Sensory Integration Fidelity Measures and principles from data-based decision making.
