Foundation For Function: A Contemporary Approach to Assessment and Treatment of Postural Control

13 Oct - 14 Oct 2023 @ Montreal


Postural control is widely accepted as the foundation for all functional motor skills; gross motor, fine motor and oral motor as well as phonation and articulation. However few therapists feel mastery in understanding the interconnections, assessment, clinical reasoning skills of treatment and development of home program strategies to address the various components of this complex phenomenon.

This course is a deep dive into this subject. We utilize a contemporary model of postural control grounded in dynamic systems theory as the framework for developing the theoretical understanding and practical skills for 12 individual components as well as discussions of the interconnections between these systems.

Learning will combine pre-reading, lecture, lab and video analysis. While it is geared towards paediatrics, the model is applicable across the life span.
