Effective Evaluation, Assessment, and Treatment of Pediatric Equinus Gait (Toe Walking)
Dates = April 10th, 2015-April 11th, 2015
location = SPOT4 Kids, Inc. 29-D Stonehill Road, Oswego, IL 60543
description = Gain comfort with the evaluation and treamtnet of pediatric toe walking. It is common for the practitioner to feel lost when a
child presents with a toe walking gait pattern. Both evaluation and treatment of these children are often frustrating for all involved and
frequently results in inaccurate evaluation with ineffective intervention and poor achievement of results. Long term results are rarely achieved
with either resultant surgical intervention and/or a reoccurrence of the problem. However, establishing a specific approach to treating this
type of patient can be made less frustrating and more rewarding by asking the right questions and forming a deliberate approach. This
course is excellent for alleviating a chaotic approach to the treatment of pediatric toe walking. Through an organized evaluation procedure,
specific data will be used to direct the clinician to potential etiologies. Causes and appropriate intervention strategies are identified in order t!
o utilize a systematic approach to developing an effective treatment plan.

The Hip: Kinesiology with Clinical Applications to Kinematic Alignment of the Lower Extremities in Children
with Cerebral Palsy
Dates = Friday, April 17th through Saturday, April 18th, 2015
location = Villa Park, IL
description = This two-day course will have two distinct but compatible parts. Part 1, which will be delivered each morning by Donald
Neumann who will describe many of the kinesiologic foundations of normal hip function.  This presentation will focus on muscle and joint
interactions within the hip and adjacent regions. Although this material will be applicable to virtually all age groups and different areas of
clinical practice, many of the topics will serve as a foundation for Part II, delivered each afternoon by Lois Bly. Lois will address some of the
problems and compensations seen in the child with cerebral palsy who has malalignment at the hips. Poor hip alignment in children may
be subtle but nevertheless important. During the
developmental process, the effects of gravity, impaired muscle coordination, and handling often lead to compensatory and atypical motor
development of the lower extremity musculature. Treatment must always address correct biomechanical alignment of the trunk, hips and
lower extremities while engaging and exercising the baby and child in typical, age-appropriate, functional activities. Participants will have an
opportunity to practice some treatment techniques on each other.

Alert Program Online Course
Dates = April 1 - April 30, 2015
location = Online
description = If your body is like a car engine, sometimes it runs on high, sometimes it runs on low, and sometimes it runs just right.

When teachers, parents, or therapists use these simple words with children to begin the Alert Program, they support self-regulation,
self-esteem, and self-monitoring skills. Come to one of our trainings (and/or use our books, songs, and games) to learn how easy it is to
help children keep their engines running just right at home or school.

The Alert Program has been adapted for all ages and all types of disabilities, including autism. Typically those children with high functioning
autism or Aspergers Syndrome enjoy using the engine analogy or choose their own special area of interest such as favorite animals or
dinosaurs or even Winnie the Pooh characters to describe how alert they feel.  

If children are developmentally younger than the age of eight, are non-verbal, or have other learning challenges where talking about engines
would be too abstract, the adults (parents, teachers, and other caregivers) learn what they can do to set children up for success, even if the
child does not participate in labeling their engine level. Through the Alert Program, adults learn how they can support sensory diets and be
detectives in determining what best meets childrens needs for optimal functioning.

This online training is taught by the co-authors, Mary Sue Williams and Sherry Shellenberger, offers practical, low-budget activities you can
use immediately in homes, classrooms, or therapy sessions. Join the countless professionals and parents world-wide who help children
succeed through the Alert Programs step-by-step approach. Youll find out why thousands have said, this is one of the best workshops Ive
ever attended.
