    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.
