Pediatric therapists commonly ask these questions about their patients with neuromotor dysfunction: “Where do I start? How do I prioritize in therapy? What is the most effective way to reach the functional goal?” “How do I work with children with complex issues for best outcomes?” This course answers those questions. Join in as we go through this unique in-depth analysis process integrating motor learning, neuroplasticity, Contemporary NDT and the ICF model. Go step-by-step through examination/evaluation, setting functional goals, in-depth analysis of system integrities and impairments, prioritizing, and developing treatment strategies. Explore impairments & treatment strategies specifically related to the Neuromuscular, Musculoskeletal, Sensory & Respiratory Systems. The information is presented through lecture, video and lab, including movement analysis and problem solving of children, and work with dolls. It is a dynamic course intended to give the participant skills that are immediately usable in their everyday practice, and effective with the children they treat.
The participant will:
- Determine the differences between function & participation and why therapists need to go beyond milestones
- Apply the components of the ICF model & the NDT perspective using patient examples:
- Contextual Factors
- Multi-system Integrities & Impairments
- System Integrities & Impairments, including:
- Utilizing the Assessment & Treatment Strategy Worksheet that incorporates the ICF Model, evaluate a child on video
- Identify the components of therapy Intervention using principles of Neuroplasticity and Motor Learning
- Write meaningful goals that have a life impact
- Measure the degree of progress/outcome using the GAS (Goal Attainment Scale)
- For a given child:
- Develop functional goals
- Identify Multi-System impairments/Posture & Movement Strategies related to a functional goal
- Identify critical components needed to perform a given task
- Determine possible System Impairments/Integrities related to the functional goal
- Prioritize impairments based on the functional goal
- Develop and implement appropriate treatment goals for a single session related to the functional goal
- Design a treatment plan addressing the critical components in an organized, prioritized manner using principles of neuroplasticity and motor learning
- Demonstrate treatment strategies that address critical components of an identified functional goal
