#7364 TREATING CHILDREN with CEREBELLAR MOVEMENT DISORDER
This intermediate level 2-hour webinar 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 hypertonicity. Recommended intervention strategies are based on Neuro-Developmental Treatment principles and familiarity with NDT terminology is recommended.
This course is relevant to Physical and Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and their assistants, working with children of all ages that are diagnosed with neuromuscular movement disorders 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. Video presentations will be used to identify subtle motoric qualities that are indicative of cerebellar dysfunction.
