Expanding Your Toolbox: Integrating Approaches in Pediatrics

Instructors: Kim Barthel OTR, Shelley Mannell PT

There are many different frames of reference that blend together to form a holistic approach to pediatric intervention. Combining and integrating theories assists in deepening the detective work necessary for problem- solving and development of an optimal individualized treatment plan.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a 2-day integrated learning experience. Through videos, client demonstrations and practical lab work each day, you will have the opportunity to do assessments, problem-solve and learn treatment skills as they directly apply to clients. Come and participate in a stimulating learning environment where you are actively engaged with experienced teachers and therapists. Self-reflection is encouraged throughout; the goal of this workshop is integration of skills that are essential for the management of children with a variety of challenges. What are the treatment theories and techniques that will be integrated during this workshop?
