Description

Interventions with Pediatric Gait: What Works & What Doesn't

For those who assist pediatric patients with gait, you know firsthand the crucial role that autonomous locomotion has on the lives of infants and children, especially in regards to participating with their peers. However, are you utilizing scientific practices in the examination, evaluation, and treatment of the children with whom you work? Are you using the latest and most appropriate interventions for pediatric gait disorders based on the evidence?

Find out how you can improve your care with children's gait in this recording. Skillfully explore the science of pediatric rehabilitation through the presentation of the ICF as a framework for pediatric physical therapy practice. Watch and learn as the group discusses the components of typical, atypical, and pathological gait. In addition, you will evaluate the most reliable and evidence-based tools to examine and assess skill levels and progress for children with commonly seen gait disorders. Return to your practice with the proper tools to move from an intuitive-based practice to a science-based practice, resulting in better outcomes for your clients.
