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.

Integrating Cognitive Behavioral, Social Learning, & Executive Function Strategies within the Sensory
Integrative OT Treatment Session

Dates = Saturday, February 21st, 2015
location = Villa Park, IL
description = This course is designed for occupational therapists and certified occupational therapy assistants working in either the clinic
or school setting who are new to pediatrics or are looking for new ideas to help children with sensory processing disorders.  This is an
entry-level course that will provide participants with effective and easy strategies for immediate application within their traditional S.I.
treatment for elementary and middle school clients.  Traditional sensory integration treatment will be covered to establish the foundation
for combining verbal strategies (used within cognitive behavioral theories) and visual strategies (used within executive function
literature).  The goal is  to assist clients to interact more successfully with peers and optimally participate in activities of daily living.  
Application of concepts from various cognitive, executive function, and social learning approaches will be demonstrated through lecture,
visual aids, and video case studies to help participants understand the techniques.
