Introduction To Neuro-Developmental Treatment

14 Nov - 16 Nov 2020 @ Sick Kids


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 over-viewing atypical development of children with motor challenges and how these challenges impact alignment, self-regulation and motor control.  Participants will learn to utilize clinical reasoning and movement analysis within the assessment and treatment process.

Participants will develop a basic level of skill in  facilitation of movement over the course of the 3 days, learning to create an active movement partnership with the child. There will be the opportunity to learn through lectures, handling skills labs, treatment demonstrations and in small groups.
