Workshop Description: This 2 Day in-person workshop is designed for pediatric occupational and physical therapists working with birth to twenty-one-year-old clients with neuro-motor impairments. In today’s post-pandemic world, many therapists report psychosocial and sensorimotor complications unique to these times. This course will take a holistic approach to understand the complexity of the child with developmental and neuro-motor impairments and how to treat them. Participants will learn the primary biomechanical movement components of typical vs atypical movement patterns. Principles of handling and facilitation will be reinforced through lectures, hands-on movement facilitation, and treatment demonstrations. The participants will develop an NDT problem-solving approach for facilitating movement patterns needed to enhance functional fine and gross motor skill acquisition in clients with low and high muscle tone due to cerebral palsy and neuro-motor impairments. Didactic information will include contemporary neuroscience of the motor system, an overview of typical development, and the application of pediatric biomechanical principles. NOTE: Please have a rag doll available for the Hands-on session of the course.

Objectives: – The student will begin to identify typical vs atypical sensorimotor development in their pediatric population. – The student will begin to incorporate therapeutic play and postural positioning for optimal upper extremity functioning. – The student will begin to identify the role of the basal ganglia in social, emotional, and motor performance. – The student will begin to utilize NDT- based facilitation and handling strategies to address deficits and improve functional skill acquisition. – The student will analyze functional goals and begin to apply NDT treatment principles specific to their individual goals. – The student will begin to describe the biomechanical alignment needed to promote optimal musculoskeletal growth in the young developing child
