Children's Brains, Neuroplasticity and Pediatric Intervention: What's the Evidence?

This course is designed to present the most recent empirical evidence regarding efficacy of specific therapy-related interventions. Emphasis will be on strategies for children with cerebral palsy and other neurologic-based diagnoses. Videotapes of treatment sessions will be used to illustrate major points and to present longitudinal case studies. Recent information on neuroplasticity and motor learning priniciples as related to the developing child is included and implications for the most effective clinical interventions are suggested. Treatment strategies based on current knowledge of neuroplasticity, such as contraint-induced therapy, mirror therapy, and trreadmill training, are emphasized. The information presented should be immediately applicable to the organization of clinical treatment sessions and home, school, and community-based programs for children with a variety of developmental disabilities.

The course is being instructed by Patricia Montgomery, PhD, PT, FAPTA on November 15th and 16th, 2014. This particular course counts for 16.8 contact hours with NY State. If you have any questions feel free to contact Ed Leonard at (845)341-4280 or edward.leonard@sunyorange.edu .
