Spasticity Management Across the Lifespan: Pediatric and Adult Symposium
Dates = October 10, 2014
location = Doubletree by Hilton Cleveland East Beachwood, Beachwood, Ohio
description = Course Directors: Francois Bethoux, MD and Doug Henry, MD

Overview
The symposium will highlight strategies to assess and manage spasticity, and to enhance function and quality of life in individuals
suffering from the consequences of spasticity. The topics will cover management options (rehabilitation, devices, medical and surgical
treatments) across neurological conditions that cause spasticity, and throughout the patients lifetime. A combination of didactic
presentations, case discussions, and breakout sessions, will be used to illustrate the complexity of decision making and outcome
measurement. Interaction between the audience and faculty will be encouraged throughout the symposium. An emphasis will be placed
on information that can be applied in clinical practice, including recent advances.

Objectives

Upon completion of this conference, the participant will be able to:
  Describe the pathophysiology and the consequences of upper and lower extremity spasticity
  Identify rehabilitation techniques and devices to optimize function and quality of life in patients with spasticity
  Explain medical and surgical treatment options for spasticity
  Discuss strategies to combine treatment options to address individual needs of patients with spasticity.

Target Audience

Neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurse
practitioners, physician assistants, nurses and other disciplines involved in the diagnosis and treatment of spasticity.

Function from the Inside Out - Sensory and Motor Processing for Postural Control #10-14
Dates = 7/11/2014 - 7/12/2014
location = St. Croix Falls, WI
description = When you mention your therapy source you receive a $20 off discount. Beginner to Intermediate Level Course
Our understanding regarding the development of postural control is evolving with current advances in motor science research. This
course provides an understanding of the developmental process of postural control as it underlies gross and fine motor skills. Within
the framework of postural control, participants will study the initial contribution of visual and vestibular sensory processing involved in
primitive movement patterns (=reflexes). The progression from primitive patterns to central stability will be explored, specifically
addressing the relationship of the inner and outer core musculature, and their crucial contribution to anticipatory postural control.
Discover how the development of postural control is disrupted in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, CP, DCD and hypotonia.
Lecture, videos and practical lab experiences will enhance participants clinical skills as we explore a model for assessment and
treatment of postural control in a variety of individuals wit!
h movement challenges.

Myofascial Release for Pediatrics #15-14
Dates = 9/12/2014 - 9/13/2014
location = Norfolk, VA
description = When you
mention your therapy source you receive a $20 off discount. Performing effective manual therapy to
structure, dramatically improves the outcomes that are possible with functional therapy alone. The mobility challenges that affect the
pediatric population require effective methods of intervention in order to maximally affect functional outcomes. MFR is the most
effective foundation technique in structural manual therapy and it is one of the first that must be mastered in order to return a patient to
full function.
   This two-day course instructs the pediatric therapist in performing myofascial release (MFR) effectively with a pediatric population.
Utilizing lecture, demonstrations and interactive lab, multiple MFR techniques are presented, from the basic 3 planar technique to
more complicated cranio-cervical and spinal techniques. Emphasis is placed on general palpation skills, mastering the feel of fascial
tissue, the effective use of MFR, integrating MFR with functional pediatric therapy, and integrating MFR with other complementary
manual therapies. Protocols for treatment of common pediatric diagnoses are presented.
   The clinician will be able to immediately affect significant structural and functional changes in an orthopedic or neurologically
involved patient population and will be able to incorporate these effective techniques immediately into clinical practice.

Feeding Therapy  It's Not Just About Swallowing #23-14
Dates = 9/19/2014 - 9/20/2014
location = Baltimore, MD
description = When you mention your therapy source you receive a $20 off discount. This unique 2-day course benefits pediatric speech
language pathologists and occupational therapists interested in the bigger picture pertaining to pediatric feeding disorders and who
want strategies to implement right away with their clients. Why do children have trouble eating? How are physiology, motor skills and
behavior linked and how do the basic principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) strengthen that connection? How do family dynamics
and parenting styles influence progress? Why is it that a child eats well in the clinic setting but cannot generalize those skills to the home
and school? This course answers those questions and focuses on setting children up for success for meeting functional objectives
while utilizing the premise of ABA. Participants learn how to problem solve common roadblocks in eating and then continue to build
progress by following a hierarchy of steps to succe!
ss. Most importantly, this course emphasizes the importance of keeping the fun in feeding while developing consistent positive
behaviors at mealtimes so that everyone in the family can enjoy their time together around the family table!
