Introduction to Neuro-Developmental Treatment

30 May - 1 Jun 2019 @ Child Development Centre of Prince George and District

Prince George, BC

This 3-day course utilizes a hands-on problem solving model. Typical motor development is presented within a systems perspective with the focus of study highlighting how musculoskeletal alignment contributes to the development of upper extremity function, oral motor function, phonation and functional mobility. The systems framework also assists when examining atypical development of children with motor challenges and how these challenges impact alignment, self-regulation and motor control. Participants will learn to utilize problem solving and movement analysis within the assessment and treatment process. In addition participants will develop a basic level of skill in problem solving during facilitation of movement. There will be the opportunity to learn through lectures, handling skills labs, treatment demonstrations and in small groups. On the final day, therapists will also have opportunity to participate in a treatment practicum with clients, which provides an invaluable opportunity to put your theoretical knowledge into practice.

Registration is limited to 24 therapists.
