Description

Evaluation and Treatment Plans for Common Pediatric Musculoskeletal and Movement Problems
With the rising incidence of cerebral palsy, survival of the tiniest premature infants, and the increased incidence of torticollis, any professionals working with children in an inpatient, outpatient, school, or home environment will undoubtedly be asked to assess and treat children with movement and neuromuscular disorders. A diagnosis of "cerebral palsy" or "developmental delay" is very general and professionals who are asked to treat a child with one of these or other general diagnoses must have a good understanding of the evaluation tools and treatment options that will guide the provision of an individualized, safe, and effective program for each child.

This recording will help attendees choose the best assessment tool (standardized and non-standardized) for each patient and get a comprehensive picture of the patient by using an orderly approach for general observations (PIQ-ture). Goal-setting and treatment ideas will be discussed for each type of patient, noting differences between "evidence-based" treatment ideas and standard protocols used. Leave with many hands-on ideas that can be used immediately in the practice setting, as well as numerous resources and ideas for further study.
