Praxis: Evaluation and Treatment of the Clumsy Child
Many school-age children struggle with motor skills that their peers have long mastered. These "clumsy" children may exhibit difficulties with writing, activities of daily living, as well as issues with play and sports. This lab course will provide practical and effective intervention strategies for these children. Underlying etiologies of clumsiness (developmental coordination disorders) as well as newer concepts of motor control and motor development will be discussed in relationship to other neurophysiologic concepts. This course will discuss evaluation tools to isolate the roots of the problem and treatment techniques and suggestions for the classroom utilizing an integrated approach. Functional outcomes and clinical effectiveness will be emphasized.
The course is being instructed by Barbara Connolly, PT, DPT, Ed.D., FAPTA on November 14th and 15th, 2015. This particular course counts for 15 contact hours with NY State. If you have any questions feel free to contact Ed Leonard at (845)341-4280 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
