Intensive Handling and Problem Solving for Function: An NDT Approach
This course is designed for experienced pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapists who are interested in improving their problem-solving skills in order to achieve more efficient functional outcomes for children with Neuromuscular Disorders such as Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. Emphasizing a NDT ( NeuroDevelopmental Treatment) framework, the course will utilize client videos as a basis for problem solving sessions and handling labs. Therapists will have the opportunity to develop functional outcomes related to participation, analyze multi-system and single system impairments and discuss treatment plans. Labs will focus on handling strategies that address priority impairments, facilitate optimal control of posture and movement and relate directly to the desired functional outcomes. Carryover strategies for home, school and community will also be discussed
