Episodes of care and functional goal writing




Pediatric therapy services are currently encountering new challenges in service delivery and reimbursement. With the recent changes in Medicaid policies,  physical, occupational and speech therapists are faced with philosophical and practical changes in determining a patient’s plan of care.  This course is designed to explore the concept of “Episodes of Care” and how to implement this practice model while still meet the needs of the patients  Reimbursement for pediatric therapy services is a growing challenge.  Therapists are being charged with showing functional gains with less therapy sessions.   Writing a well-constructed functional goal is the key to showing progress and meeting the needs of the patient.   During this course, we will learn the components of a SMART goal and how to use the ICF model as a guide to writing goals.

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.

Concussive injuries are on the forefront of media, and the number of healthcare practitioners tasked with intervening is growing daily.  During this 2-day course taught by a Neuro-Optometrist, listeners will be provided with insight into common post-head trauma issues of neuro-vestibular/visual disturbances as the #1 indicators of Post-Concussion Syndrome.  Join  us as we offer discussion of functional integration of visual/vestibular systems and how these are impacted by head trauma.  Learn how to assess for and treatment plan for your patients with visual issues related to head trauma.  This course has been approved for CEU's for OT/SLP and Texas PT's.

The 1-Day Practitioner Training Course (PTC) covers the iLs curriculum in a hands-on interactive format. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the key elements that inform iLs methodology, reviewing relevant neuro-anatomy of the ear, brain and nervous system, hands-on practicum for the auditory, visual and balance components of iLs, and discussion of iLs’ music processing and program design.After a learner has successfully completed the course, the learner may use the designation “iLs Associate Practitioner” and are qualified to purchase the iLs Focus and Kick Start. The Interactive Language Program is also taught in the training. Trainees may become resellers of home equipment after they have completed the training requirements as well as their own listening program, and demonstrated satisfactory knowledge of the equipment.


WE ARE BOOKING COURSES FOR 2018, so if your facility is interested in bringing one of our courses to you, please contact us at info@gomotm.com for course availability .  Train your whole team in quality intervention techniques!!

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.
