Description:

Do you ever wonder where to begin with your clients that have many needs? What is the leading area of concern? Why does it seem my treatments aren’t as effective as I anticipated? This workshop will enhance critical thinking skills and hands-on skills to facilitate therapists in using a problem-solving approach when treating children with complicated developmental challenges. Focus during the workshop will utilize critical thinking skills for evaluation and assessment from a neurodevelopmental, sensory and motor learning aspect. Using this approach will assist therapists in setting realistic and measurable goals that will drive treatment sessions resulting in more effective intervention.

Objectives:

  • Identify key aspects of development in the context of typical movement and sensation related to a designated task
  • Create a functional goal for a designated task applying current concepts learned from an NDT, ST and motor learning aspect
  • Apply critical thinking to design a prioritized approach that identifies top areas to be addressed in treatment
  • Using a systematic approach describe a treatment plan based on functional goal
  • Design three intervention steps to execute in treatment
