(Pediatric Equinus Gait)
9.5 Contact Hours (.95 CEUs)
This course will teach clinicians to develop interventions based on etiologies to produce successful long term outcomes. Through an organized evaluation procedure, specific data will be used to direct the clinician to potential etiologies. Causes and appropriate intervention strategies are identified in order to utilize a systematic approach to developing an effective treatment plan. This course challenges the clinician to ask the correct questions in order to form a systematic approach to treating the child who “toe walks.”
with Sensory Dysfunction
11 Contact Hours (1.1 CEUs)
Gain practical “Sensory-Aware” tools to treat children with both underlying gross motor and sensory dysfunction. You will learn to utilize sensory-aware skills that are based in functional strengthening and coordination activities to maximize the effectiveness of your treatments. You will leave this course with the ability to improve children’s postural control, foundational weakness, instability, incoordination, motor planning, and restricted mobility by utilizing sensory knowledge to improve functional outcomes and increase participation in school and at home.
Can be taken alone, but is a great follow up to the above Toe Walking course!
