COURSE TITLE

LEARNING GOALS

SUITABLE FOR

Getting The Most From Postural Management Equipment

 

Gain awareness of the relationship between posture and function, building an understanding of the benefits of appropriate use of postural management equipment for activity and comfort

  • Therapy assistants
  • New Paediatric Occupational Therapists / Physiotherapists
  • Educational staff
Fundamentals Of Seating (3-part course, approx. 3 hours)

 

In the first part of this course, we will investigate the relationship between stability, function and comfort, specifically looking at the role of the pelvis in impacting these factors. We will then examine the effect that impairment has on the child's presentation and posture.
Part two of this course will explore Best Practice in seating assessment. You will learn a step-wise approach to conducting a supine and upright assessment, exploring how lower body stability can bring upper body function.

The final part of this course will bring together the learning from goal setting, observation and assessment to product set-up. We will examine the options to stabilise the pelvis, controlling or accommodating as necessary, with the ultimate aim to match the product to the child, not the child to the product.

  • Occupational Therapists
  • Therapy Assistants

The Development Of Posture & Motor Control and Early Intervention (EI) Strategies To Advance Posture & Motor Control

(Pairs with Using the Segmental Assessment of Trunk Control (SATCo) to Develop Targeting Training Therapy)

 

This course will help you gain an understanding of the maturation of the nervous system, how this leads to the sequential development of head and trunk control and recognise the impact of cultural norms and 'training' on motor development. Then expand your understanding on the need for early diagnosis and intervention and the importance of task-orientated and child-initiated therapy. Learn more about practical strategies and therapy ideas for El programmes.

Using the Segmental Assessment of Trunk Control (SATCo) to Develop Targeting Training Therapy

 

Review the typical development of trunk control in children and then look at how t differs in children with neuromotor disability. There will be an introduction to the Segmental Assessment of Trunk Control [SATCo) and to Targeted Training therapy. In addition, there will be discussion of the wider use of these concepts, including simple techniques for immediate action to help promote upright postural control and improved function, especially for those children with greater severity of disability.

  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Therapy assistants

Update On CP Hip

 

Expand your knowledge of typical hip development and the effect of biomechanical loading on the proximal femur. Explore what happens when loading is abnormal for children with cerebral palsy, and how this information guides conservative treatment using postural care and activity to minimise hip displacement and optimise function.

  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational Therapists
