# 386 KT4: Specialty Pediatric Concepts of the Kinesio Taping Method (K4 Toward Specialization)
The KT4 Pediatric course is an eight hour advanced seminar appropriate for practitioners who treat a pediatric population. Participants will have completed KT1, KT2, and KT3 prior to enrolling in KT4 Pediatric. In this seminar we will explore common diagnoses seen in pediatric patients from NICU to adolescence, and present suggested taping techniques for them. Kinesio Taping can be used during physical activity and in conjunction with many therapeutic interventions. Attendees will review theory and basic taping techniques, learn advanced and combination techniques, and develop clinical reasoning skills relevant to the pediatric population. The course will also provide commonly used taping techniques for specific diagnoses, including cerebral palsy, hemiplegia, torticollis, and brachial plexus injury; as well as pediatric sports related injuries.
The seminar will utilize lecture, lab, and case studies to demonstrate appropriate taping techniques. Assessment of the diagnoses presented will help the student to apply similar techniques to any indicated problem they should encounter in the clinic. A key focus of this course will be the adaptation of common Kinesio Taping techniques for use with smaller and less developed patients.
