Introduction to Neuro-Developmental Treatment
3 Nov - 5 Nov 2017 @ Hospital for Sick Children
This 3-day course utilizes a hands-on clinical problem solving model. Typical motor development is presented within a systems perspective with the focus of study highlighting how musculoskeletal alignment contributes to postural control. The contribution of postural control as the foundation for the development of functional vision, upper extremity function, oral motor function and functional mobility is presented. The systems framework also assists when over-viewing atypical development of children with motor challenges and how these challenges impact alignment, sensory processing, self-regulation and motor control. Participants will learn to utilize movement analysis and clinical reasoning within the assessment and treatment process. Participants will develop a basic level of skill in problem solving during facilitation of movement. There will be opportunities to learn through lectures, handling skills labs and treatment demonstrations in both large and small groups.
Registration for this event will be online through Sick Kids Hospital. Check back soon for more information including when registration goes live.
