#7364 TREATING CHILDREN with CEREBELLAR MOVEMENT DISORDER

 

Audience: Physical therapist, Occupational Therapists and Assistants

 

This intermediate level course focuses on treating the challenging child that does not fit into typical movement impairments of cerebral palsy. Children with cerebellar involvement may range from high functioning and “clumsy” to “doesn’t seem to care to move.” The clinical presentation may encompass communication disorders, autistic behaviors, ataxia, or hyper-tonicity. Recommended intervention strategies are based on Neuro-Developmental Treatment principles.

 

This course is relevant to Physical and Occupational Therapists, and their assistants, working with children of all ages that are diagnosed with neuromuscular movement dis-orders or autism spectrum disorders. Current research is finding that pediatric cerebellar dysfunction presents as complex involvement affecting sensory-motor, affective, communicative and cognitive function. Course content will cover various examples of how children with these impairments might present during familial, academic or community participation.

 

Treatment strategies will focus on multisystem system impairments and activities that target balance, posture and mobility of children with cerebellar involvement. (Intermediate Level)
