# 325 The Pediatric Brain: Functional Neuroanatomy, The Sensory Systems and their Treatment Applications
This course will provide physical and occupational therapists with a deeper understanding of the complex multi-system involvement of the brain in reflex integration, movement, learning, and daily functioning. The instructor will use innovative and multi-sensory approaches to help participants relate the information to their everyday practice. The first day of the course will focus on the functional aspects of neuroanatomy.
The second day will focus on the interaction between the vestibular-visual systems. The visual system is often overlooked by both occupational and physical therapists and the instructor strives to provide therapists with a new perspective to demonstrate the importance of incorporating visual dysfunction within their vestibular treatment. The visual system has an enormous impact on the precise functioning of the vestibular system and dysfunction can result in poor performance across all areas of a child's function. Participants will review real life cases through video to enhance understanding of the material. This course has application for Speech Therapy practice by providing a better understanding of cognitive development for applying treatment concepts.
At the end of this two-day course, therapists will have a proficient functional knowledge of neuroanatomy and the visual-vestibular systems in the dysfunctional pediatric population, and immediately utilize this knowledge to augment their current practice.
New activities have been recently added to allow for reflex integration, and visual-vestibular play in a teletherapy model.
