# 352 Handling the Rib Cage for improved respiratory coordination in function

 

This 2-day workshop has been designed for speech-language pathologists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists who need greater experience in focusing on rib cage activity and its influence on postural control and respiratory, general movement, and oral-pharyngeal function in terms of the evaluation and treatment services they provide. Significant anatomical/kinesiological and developmental characteristics of typical rib cage alignment and activity will be reviewed. Atypical rib cage activity in infants and young children with neuromuscular involvement will be discussed. Treatment strategies directed toward improving rib cage and respiratory musculature activity will be explored through group movement lab sessions and audiovisual presentations.
