Courses

  1. Title: Get On Your Feet

A systematic review and presentation of clinical practice guidelines for supported standing programs:

Designing and implementing a supported standing program requires an in depth knowledge of the evidence based outcomes, best practices, effective dosing, and types of standers and options available.  This program will begin with a review of the evidence for hip biomechanics, range of motion and bone mineral density.  Case stories and photos of children placed in standers will help participants design and implement best evidence based programs with measureable goals and outcomes.  Participants will leave understanding how standers can prevent as well as improve contractures, hip subluxation and pathological fractures in children at the GMFCS Levels III-V

  1. Title: Learning to Walk, Walking to Learn

Systematic Review and Clinical Practice Guidelines for Gait Trainer Use.

Children need to explore their environment to learn about their world and their selves.   The ability to move and explore independently  plays a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of psychological function. Independent mobility also plays a key role in social development and the transition from crawling to walking marks an important progression in overall development and social interaction.  Children who are immobile become less verbal, interactive, and social and in addition, their cognition is also negatively impacted. Gait trainers are frequently used in hospitals, clinics, schools, and homes for infants, toddlers, children and adolescents who cannot walk independently.  This course will review the evidence and illustrate clinical practice guidelines using case stories to provide clinicians with information they need to design and implement mobility programs for children at the GMFCS Level III-IV
