This two-day workshop focuses on using the NDT Practice Model in treating the child with hypotonia, concentrating on interventions to improve control and alignment of the trunk, pelvis, lower extremity, shoulder girdle, and upper extremity. Specific strategies to improve motor control in this population will be presented. Treatment strategies based on the common impairments of the sensorimotor system in this population will be demonstrated using videotapes, case studies, and practice labs.

The Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program, Level 2 (CCIP Level 2) is the successor to APTA’s former Advanced Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (ACCIP). This voluntary program is designed for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who have successfully completed the APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor Level 1 Program (CCIP Level 1), and want to further develop their clinical teaching skills and construct a clinical curriculum.
Aquatic therapy is an ideal treatment choice for high motor functioning children and adolescents with disabilities to allow them to achieve the appropriate high intensity required to progress in their mobility and gross motor skills.
More children than ever need early intervention and other services. nd, there are not enough available services. Therapists, early interventionists, parents, medical professionals, and others have seen a sharp rise in children with delayed and/or disordered feeding, speech, and mouth development. These include children with disabilities as well as many typically-born children who, for some reason, are not developing as expected.
This dynamic evolving course will concentrate on progressive, effective treatment schemes for infants and young children with a diagnosis of torticollis, with or without plagiocephaly, including challenging cases. The course is designed to provide therapists with current research and recommendations pertaining to the implications of torticollis, sleep posture, and increased use of positional devices on infant postural and motor development.
Feeding difficulties in the NICU are common and can be challenging for even experienced therapists. Premature infants and medically fragile/sick newborns are unique from typically developing healthy newborns. An appreciation of their fragile and immature subsystems, maturation of these subsystems around feeding and swallowing, as well as our ability to impact these systems, are required to be a successful clinician serving this population. This two-day seminar will provide a strong foundatio
We are in the midst of a running boom. With the popularity of running exploding so, too, has an epidemic of injury. The expectations to get your runners back out on the road, trails, or track can be stressful for the sports medicine team, not to mention the client. It is essential to be up-to-date on the clinically-relevant and evidence-based evaluation and treatment approaches for injured runners to maximize functional outcomes in a safe and timely manner.
This five-day module expands upon the basic handling and problem-solving activities gained in the Foundation and Classification Modules. Lab, problem-solving activities, and client demonstrations will incorporate: analysis and facilitation of movement and postural control, transition from floor-to-stand, transition on-and-off equipment, and introduction to the use of moveable surfaces.
This seminar is designed to help therapists develop a comprehensive understanding of vision deficits commonly associated with acquired brain injury. Included will be the most common vision disorders and basic pathologies of the visual system, as well as their functional implications.
Living with cerebral palsy is a journey. No life period is isolated from another. In this course we will examine the complex relationships among the varying challenges of each life stage and the clinician’s role throughout. Clinicians will examine their own beliefs about cerebral palsy and how those beliefs impact the long term outcomes for the babies, children, adolescents, adults, and families they serve.
This two-day course is designed for experienced physical and occupational therapists and speech language pathologist currently working with babies. Lecture information will focus on NDT Infant Treatment Principles. Labs and videotapes will be used to problem-solve system impairments for infants in general, and for the specific infants who will be treated in demonstration sessions. Labs with dolls will augment the therapist’s understanding of infant treatment techniques.
Lymphedema is an accumulation of protein-rich fluid in the superficial tissues and is a very common and serious condition worldwide. It has important pathological and clinical consequences for the patient if left untreated.
Secondary lymphedema is often caused by trauma to the lymphatic system, such as surgery, injury, scarring, infection, and radiation therapy. Post-mastectomy lymphedema of the upper extremity caused by breast cancer treatment is very common in the United States.

The 20-hour Kinesio Taping® Express Course will present all the concepts and techniques of Kinesio Taping in an expedited course format. The first day will present an overview of the development of the Kinesio Taping Method®, fundamental concepts, assessments and screening tests, and begin to introduce Kinesio Correction taping techniques. After completing fundamental concepts, the course will move into advanced techniques and clinical reasoning. Attendees will problem-solve complex clini
This course is designed to provide physical, occupational and speech therapists specializing in pediatrics advanced taping techniques and clinical problem-solving skills. Attendees will review theory and basic taping, wrapping and strapping techniques, learn advanced and combination taping techniques, and develop clinical reasoning skills.
This five-day workshop on gait and mobility for the pediatric client has been designed for pediatric therapists who were trained and successfully completed the Basic Pediatric NDT course at least one year prior to the start of this advanced, approved gait course. The emphasis is to promote continued analysis and problem-solving towards gait and function in vertical with children through young adults 21 years of age who present with neurological challenges.
This timely seminar will bring you essential information to problem-solve complex swallowing and feeding disorders. Correlating co-morbidities, clinical data, and the infant/child’s behaviors is at the heart of completing a good differential.
Watsu is a water therapy developed by Harold Dull to create a unique blend of Zen Shiatsu and yogic stretches designed to free the body in water. Basic Watsu is an experiential course, which introduces Watsuchanics (body mechanics in water). In order to focus on connecting to the breath and presence, students are led through all the moves without being required to memorize a sequence.
Join us for a Train-the-Trainer session on the Early Feeding Skills Assessment (EFS) Tool. Effective feeding care starts with assessment of what the infant needs to be successful. Learn to use the EFS to effectively plan provide an infant-guided approach to feeding. Simultaneously learn to train others back home to use the EFS to strengthen your unit’s feeding care. Review current research, the role of experience, dynamic systems theory, and feeding outcomes after NICU.
