Pre-Gait and Gait Interventions to Improve Function in Children With Cerebral Palsy
Presented by Lisa Kenyon, PT, DPT, PhD, PCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3816Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course provides an overview of gait issues and concerns in children with cerebral palsy as well as evidence-based pre-gait and gait interventions to address these issues, including use of handling and facilitation techniques, environmental adaptation, and motor control interventions. Outcome measures designed to assess gait in children who have CP will also be presented and discussed. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Impact of Motor Learning For The Child With Autism Spectrum Disorder
Presented by Mariah Woody, OTR/L, Lisa Roehl, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3870Level: Advanced4 Hours
Master skills to implement in your practice immediately with continued Master Class. Children with ASD face challenges as they form the motor programs that serve as the basis for daily life and play. This interdisciplinary course series will expand upon the theory of praxis and the child’s ability to adaptively respond to their environment in a way that is meaningful and efficient. Through practical and clinical demonstrations, the learner will develop a deeper understanding of the importance of motor learning for the child with ASD. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Are We Underserving the Pediatric Ankle? Supporting Development Through a Multi-System Approach
Presented by Amanda Hall, PT, MPT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3832Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will instruct on examination and treatment of foot and ankle involvement for patients with pediatric health conditions including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophies, and toe walking. Evidence-based interventions will be covered, including joint and soft tissue mobilizations to promote adaptive relative flexibility; improving intrinsic stability through progressive strengthening of the "foot core"; interventions to positively impact neuroplastic changes; and design of orthoses to support function and optimal development. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Overview of Hippotherapy for Physical Therapy Professionals
Presented by Lori Garone, PT, MA, HPCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3741Level: Introductory2 Hours
This is an overview to the treatment tool of hippotherapy for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. This course will give the PT and PTA an understanding of the principles of hippotherapy, types of patients, and impairments that support including it into a plan of care and, the research supporting it for EBP. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Autism and Neurodiversity
Presented by Diane E. Treadwell-Deering, MD
Recorded Webinar

Advanced Topics for the Evaluation and Treatment of Torticollis
Presented by Lisa Roehl, PT, DPT, PCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3707Level: Advanced2 Hours
Torticollis is identified by the posture of the head and neck from a unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetrical positioning can directly affect the child’s early motor development, specifically vision, early hand control, and reciprocal movement. This course aims to progress the participant’s knowledge of torticollis’ impact on a child beyond cervical range of motion impairments. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Tools You Can Use: Enhancing Outcomes Assessment in Children with Cerebral Palsy
Presented by Lisa Kenyon, PT, DPT, PhD, PCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3616Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This session will focus on outcome measures reflecting the various domains of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) that can be used with children who have cerebral palsy. Guidelines related to the use and application of these various tools will be presented and discussed whilst case scenarios and vignettes will be used to illustrate the application of these evidence-based tools to pediatric practice. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Power to Go: Meeting the Needs of Pediatric Power Mobility Learners
Presented by Lisa Kenyon, PT, DPT, PhD, PCS
Recorded Webinar
