Event Overview
Welcome message:

This clinically oriented workshop series was designed for pediatric therapists who work with children who have spastic cerebral palsy. This workshop provides clinicians with a comprehensive overview of a lifespan management approach to improve abilities in children with different clinical presentations of cerebral palsy. The first day provides an overview of contemporary motor control theories as they relate to Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT), a brief review of current perspectives of spasticity, a movement observation and analysis framework, and movement/treatment practicum with other participants. 


Each day provides opportunities for in depth analysis of movement organization and motor performance demonstrated by children with different types of spastic cerebral palsy. Movement observation, analysis and problem solving sessions are utilized to develop and improve handling skills and expand the clinicians’ repertoire of NDT treatment strategies based upon contemporary theories and evidence. These strategies can significantly enhance the clients’ abilities to move more efficiently, engage in more effective functional movements and increase overall independence.


Participants learn treatment and management strategies and rationale for applying strategies that can significantly enhance the clients’ abilities to move more efficiently and ultimately increase their overall independence. In depth analysis of the posture and movement characteristics that children who have spastic cerebral palsy demonstrate serves as a foundation for expanding the clinicians’ repertoire of Neuro-Developmental Treatment strategies that address critical impairments, functional limitations and participation restrictions. The course will directly address diagnoses of spastic cerebral palsy, however content can be adapted and applied to children who have spasticity due to other etiologies.


Course participants will engage in movement practicum sessions (with other course participants), group discussions, problem solving scenarios, and observe videotaped and live client demonstrations to facilitate application and synthesis of course material. 


Day 2 Children who have spastic cerebral palsy, quadriplegic involvement

Day 3 Children who have spastic cerebral palsy, diplegic distribution

Day 4 Children who have hemiplegic involvement


Discuss ways to enhance movement observation and analysis skills in children who have spastic cerebral palsy as a basis for treatment planning and documentation.

Identify the complex multisystem influences on posture and movement strategies used in activity and participation, commonly seen in children who have spastic cerebral palsy.

Identify, prioritize and target common posture and movement problems experienced by children with spastic cerebral palsy that interferes with more adaptive and efficient motor behavior used for function.

Describe NDT principles within the World Health Organization International Classification of Function (WHO-ICF) model for assessment, goal setting and treatment planning to children with cerebral palsy and other neuromotor disorders.

Develop realistic, discipline specific, functional goals for children with different types of spastic cerebral palsy.
