#9365 Intervention with Children and Adults with Hypertonic Cerebral Palsy

This home study course of 11,000 words plus 179 peer-reviewed references is designed as an intermediate-level course for physical, occupational, and speech therapists and assistants who work in intervention and other management with people with cerebral palsy (CP). Hypertonic cerebral palsy is the most common type of abnormal muscle tone seen in cerebral palsy, but not all hypertonia is the same. In CP, spastic and dystonic classifications of CP are both forms of hypertonia and may be difficult for clinicians to distinguish from one another. However, each has different posture and movement impairments that interfere with functional skills. Determining whether the person being treated has spasticity, dystonia, or both will vary the principles of intervention chosen to address the unique needs of each person with hypertonic CP.
