The CEU Group
Dates = Year-round
location = Nationwide
description = The CEU Group is a brand new twist on an old idea in continuing education.  The idea is that a professional can get a
discount on a course by registering as a group.  But what if said professional does not have the resources or contacts to get a group
together? In the past, this situation has meant that the professional has to pay 10-35% more to attend the event.  This result is no
longer necessary!  The CEU Group is working with many providers of continuing education to get group rates, and even better to
hundreds of courses nationwide.  We then pass those discounts down to you, the licensed professional, so you can get the great
continuing education you need at a price you want.

To come see how this works, please come visit us at www.theceugroup.com and join our fast-growing database to keep abreast on
new partnerships and new participating events in your area.

location = Villa Park, IL
description = This course is designed for physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists, occupational
therapy assistants, and speech pathologists who treat children with severe physical disabilities. The course includes lecture, labs
where participants treat each other, problem solving, goal setting, and a treatment demonstration by the instructor.

Therapists learn examples of common functional outcomes desired in people with severe impairments and are provided with written
treatment ideas augmented by line drawings. There are many examples of treatment ideas for respirations, including ribcage and
thoracic spine mobility, facilitation of postural/ respiratory musculature for efficient respirations, and treatment ideas for head/ neck
trunk alignment, limb mobility, and limb control.
