Positive Functional Outcomes through Strength Training in Children with Developmental Disabilities
Most children with disabilities and motor impairments have strength deficits and weakness-related impairments. These strength deficits correlate or directly interfere with their functional level and participation across multiple environments including at home and school. This seminar will focus on how to best apply available literature into clinical and educational practice for optimal outcomes. Through practice, extensive case problem analysis and discussion, participants will learn best practices in data driven, scientific based interventions for strength, endurance, and function. This seminar will encourage the success of children with special needs and set up high standards in outcomes.
This course will help therapists set realistic goals, prioritize treatment and implement successful programs for children with disabilities including cerebral palsy, multiply handicapped, obesity, chronic orthopedic conditions, and autism from preschool through school age, adolescence, and towards adulthood.
The course is being instructed by Bobby Nabeyama on November 5th and 6th, 2016. This particular course counts for 18 contact hours with NY State. If you have any questions feel free to contact Ed Leonard at (845)341-4280 or email@example.com
