During this dynamic two-day course taught by Christina Cayo, OTR, C/NDT, Pediatric OT NDTA Instructor, participants will explore hands-on, task and environmental strategies to improve the child's awareness, alignment, activation, coordination, grading and strength of the UE's. In pediatric practice we often work on achieving improved functional use of the upper extremities for transitions, play, activities of daily living and communication. Activity limitations impeding independence occur due to a variety of impairments that impact the child’s motor control. Inactivity of the postural system musculature effects the ability to accurately reach. Weakness, impaired length-tension relationships, atypical synergies of movement, inattention and / or sensory impairments can impact the child’s ability to develop complex movement and function that our hands are designed to perform. Join us to explore treatment strategies to manage any of these issues related to making positive change in UE function.
This course utilizes lectures, handling labs, videos, and discussion to integrate this information. Adjuncts to support treatment results and carry-over suggestions will be provided as well.
This course is appropriate for OT/COTA and PT/PTA working with children with postural and movement disorders, particularly related to UE function. CEU's are available through AOTA and TPTA, and this event offers credit toward NDTA re-certification.
Learning Objectives: At the end of the 2-day event, participants will-
