Event Overview
Welcome message:

This course is designed for physical and occupational therapists, and assistants treating children with neurological deficits who are acquiring gait, desire to have vertical mobility such as walking, or who currently function in vertical. The acquisition of typical gait and function in vertical will be studied in toddlers and children via slides, video and observation of an assessment and treatment demonstration. Current philosophy and principles of the Neuro-Developmental Treatment approach will be presented as it relates to treatment of gait and acquisition of skills in vertical. Movement labs will be used to facilitate one another through movement transitions and to learn handling techniques for the treatment of gait and functional tasks typically done in vertical. Observation of a gait assessment and treatment session will show treatment and handling techniques on a client.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

identify at least 10 aspects of typical development as regards the development of pre-gait and gait skills via slides, video, and observation of mature gait

identify the biomechanical alignment that is most energy efficient in the acquisition of pre-gait and gait skills via slides and video

identify the characteristics of gait in the typically developing population

use task analysis to identify the movement components and missing movement components while observing a child during function in vertical

facilitate at least 15 movement transitions and functional skills for pre-gait and gait training that are appropriate for the pediatric population on another adult in lab.

list activities of daily living/routines that will inspire carry-over in the home and school environment
