This course discusses what is normal and abnormal in regards to pediatric sleep and potential causes of sleep dysfunction. This course enables the physical therapist to screen for sleep disorders or dysfunction, provide appropriate interventions to assist with sleep within the physical therapist scope of practice as well as help to identify proper professionals to refer patients to when concerns arise. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Jennifer Palmer graduated from the DPT program at Lebanon Valley College in 2015. Since then she has worked in a variety of settings including acute care, skilled nursing facilities, outpatient, telehealth, and has helped to teach a few lab courses including Differential Diagnosis and a course on Complex Case Studies at the University of St. Augustine in San Marcos. She was also able to expand her knowledge on the role as a physical therapist when living abroad in Japan, using her background outside of the “clinical norm” to help teach medical English and anatomy as well as help edit international presentations for Japanese professionals. Jennifer recently completed a “Baby-Led Sleep Certification” which led her to further inquire about how physical therapists can assist in the role of sleep.
