Posture and Movement – How Does Sensory Integration Fit In?
December 16, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm CST| $195
This webinar was designed to introduce clinicians to the Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) problem-solving process, therapeutic handling, and clinical decision-making process when treating children that display motor and sensory problems within a treatment session. Improving the clinician’s perception regarding the interrelation between the sensory systems, neuromuscular systems, and posture and movement (multi-system) will be emphasized.
Through video demonstration the participant will recognize multi/single-system integrities and impairments related to functional activities and participation. Identification of neuromuscular and sensory system impairments will be highlighted, improving the clinician’s observational skills to determine treatment strategies related to the child’s functional outcome. NDT handling strategies addressing both the sensory and neuromuscular impairments simultaneously will be demonstrated via video.
Discussion of the clinical decision-making process during a single session will allow the participant to appreciate and acknowledge an integrated approach to children with sensorimotor dysfunction.
Friday, December 16, 2016, 8:30am – 5:00pm CST
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the NDT problem-solving process.
- Identify the multi and single system impairments affecting single session functional outcomes.
- Understand the relationship between the neuromuscular and sensory systems related to functional activities and participation.
- Identify and discuss treatment strategies that simultaneously address the neuromuscular and sensory impairments.
