Description
This intensive course is designed for experienced pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapists who are interested in improving their problemsolving skills in order to achieve more efficient functional outcomes for children with Neuro-Motor disorders such as Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. Emphasizing a NDT (Neuro-Developmental Treatment) framework, the course will utilize client videos as a basis for problem solving sessions and handling labs.
