HANDS-ON APPROACH TO TREATING INDIVIDUALS WITH​ NEUROLOGICAL IMPAIRMENT

December 7-8, 2019- Milestones Therapeutic Associates - McAllen, TX


In pediatric practice we often work on achieving improved functional use of the UE for transitions, play, activities of daily living and communication. Activity limitations impeding independence occur due to a variety of impairments that impact the child’s motor control. Inactivity of the postural system musculature effects the ability to accurately reach. Weakness, impaired length-tension relationships, atypical synergies of movement, inattention and / or sensory impairments can impact the child’s ability to develop complex movement and function that our hands are designed to perform.  Attend this course to explore hands on, task, and environmental strategies to improve the child’s awareness, alignment, activation, coordination, grading and strength of their upper extremities.

ADDRESSING UNILATERAL, BILATERAL, BIMANUAL UE FUNCTION IN PEDIATRIC PRACTICE

November 8-9, 2019 - Progressive Pediatric Therapy - Dallas area

                                                

This 2-day workshop for physical, occupational, and speech therapists will focus on learning basic handling skills to facilitate posture and movement strategies in individuals with neurological dysfunction. This course is a hands-on, lab-intensive workshop. Participants will learn the basic principles of the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach and how to incorporate them into highly individualized treatment sessions. Special emphasis will be placed upon problem-solving to enhance treatment planning and strategies in order to improve functional outcomes relevant to Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapists. Development of specific handling skills will be emphasized in order to influence the multi-system and single-system impairments. The focus is on the pediatric population; however, because the labs are practiced with adults, the information is applicable to adults with neurological impairments, as well.

Optimal performance depends on the functional integration of our sensory systems. This 5-part series offers  professionals information about each sensory system’s direct influence on our ability to function in a busy world. We explore the neuroanatomy/physiology, assessment for dysfunction and functional ramifications of each system (vision, vestibular, auditory, somatosensory). We will discuss the dynamic inter-relationships among all of the sensory systems. Through lecture and visual representation, participants will develop an understanding of the importance of working with sensory systems to improve abilities in movement, communication, socialization and learning. Don't miss these one-hour discussions of the sensory systems and how you may impact them every day.
