Defying Gravity: Understanding and Treating Children with Hypotonia
Dates = November 20-21, 2015
location = Pittsburgh, PA
description = Hypotonia is a common denominator for many children presently referred for Physical and Occupational Therapy. This course
focuses on the integration of different treatment approaches when providing services for children who display the clinical signs of low tone.
The nature of postural tone will be explored with emphasis on research regarding the vestibular system and the contributions of gravity. The
search for stability and motor development for the child with low tone will serve as a basis for understanding the challenges that life presents
to such a child. Using a systems frame of reference, we will examine how difficulties impact postural stability and independent functional
movement, including a discussion of diastasis recti in children. Techniques in Neuro-Developmental Treatment, soft tissue elongation,
sensory processing and Dynamic Core for Kids will be presented within a clinical problem-solving model for assessment and treatment. The
course will feature a combination of lectures, videos, handling labs and group problem solving.

Linking Play to Function; Utilizing Neurodevelopmental and Sensory Integration Strategies to Facilitate
Functional Skills Through Play
Dates = November 13-14, 2015
location = Baltimore, MD
description = This workshop will focus on play as a vehicle for learning for children with developmental challenges. Current information on
Neuro Developmental Treatment and Sensory Integration will provide the foundation for analyzing and applying play to assessment and
intervention with children of all ages to attain functional skills.

Pediatric Vestibular Rehabilitation: Who, What, How, and When
Dates = November 6-7, 2015
location = Marlton, NJ
description = Attendance and successful completion will prepare participants to screen for vestibular system deficits and alter standard of
care, thus improving clinical services to infants, children and adolescents, .  This 1.5 day course provides an overview of the basis of and
evidence for vestibular rehabilitation for children.  Didactic content includes an overview of the anatomy, physiology and development of the
Vestibular System, the epidemiology of vestibular dysfunction in children, diagnostic and clinical testing of vestibular function,, and evidence
based examination and evaluation of, and  intervention for, vestibular related impairments in children.  Demonstration and training of
examination techniques and intervention are included.  Case reviews and discussion are used to facilitate application of presented
materials.

Myofasical Release for Pediatrics
Dates = October 2-3, 2015
location = Baltimore, MD
description = 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: Its Not Just About Swallowing
Dates = September 25-26, 2015
location = Baltimore, MD
description = 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 success.  Most importantly, this course emphasizes the
importance of keep!
ing 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!

Connective Tissue Mobilization for Pediatric Therapists Dallas
Dates = September 25-26, 2015
location = Dallas, TX
description = Recent research suggests that connective tissue changes may contribute to postural malalignment and movement
dysfunction in children. This course is designed to introduce pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapists to the concepts and basic
practices of connective tissue mobilization. Through structural alignment observation, and hands on practicum, participants will gain the
ability to identify and treat connective tissue restrictions resulting in structural misalignments, which interfere with efficient functional
movement. Treatments specific to children with neuromotor impairment, musculoskeletal injury, post-surgical scars, and torticollis will be
explored. Case examples will be presented via pictorial description and video.

Taping to Improve Alignment, Strength and Function in Children
Dates = October 16-17, 2015
location = Baltimore, MD
description = Enhance therapy outcomes in your pediatric clients, birth through adolescence, with neuromotor impairments and issues with
alignment utilizing taping techniques presented in this course. You will practice with several different materials on the other course
participants to achieve specific objectives. Examples of intervention with children utilizing taping procedures will reinforce learning for clinical
applications. Course includes videotapes and case studies.

Treatment of the Baby and Young Child
Dates = September 18-19, 2015
location = Baltimore, MD
description = Neuro-Developmental Treatment has been found in research to be a more effective intervention than a parent-infant playgroup
for infants.  In this course, you will learn how to treat infants and young children with neuromotor impairments such as developmental delays,
cerebral palsy, down syndrome and prematurity.  Discover how to effectively activate the postural muscles and teach the baby how to move
and function while minimizing compensatory patterns.  Find out why this age is the time to emphasize prevention to maximize outcomes for
gross motor, sensory motor, fine motor and respiration.  Learn how to identify family issues relevant to the 0 to 3 year old, share strategies
that the parents can do in order to optimize their childs development, and make appropriate equipment recommendations.  You will learn
practical treatment strategies that you can immediately incorporate into your practice.
