This course is offered in cooperation with Elsevier Science and utilizes the textbook, “Physical Therapy for Children, 4th edition” c2012 by Suzann K. Campbell, PT, PhD, FAPTA.
From the basics of pediatrics to clinical applications, this book presents evidence-based coverage of treatment information in a convenient and concise format. The textbook follows the practice pattern categories of the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and focuses on the additional information you need to know when treating children.
Module 1 (Course #735) covers the management of musculoskeletal impairments in pediatrics including juvenile idiopathic arthritis, spinal conditions, congenital muscular torticollis, osteogenesis imperfecta, muscular dystrophy, limb deficiencies and amputations, sports injuries in children and more!
Module 2 (Course #736) covers the management of neurologic impairment in pediatrics including developmental coordination disorder, motor and intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries, spinal cord injuries, myelodysplasia, traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors and more!
Module 3 (Course #737) covers the management of cardiopulmonary conditions including cystic fibrosis, asthma, thoracic surgery and children requiring long-term mechanical ventilation, the educational environment, the burn unit, the special care nursery and the transition to adulthood for youth with disabilities.
Note: When ordering a single module or an e-mail version, only the selected chapters are included in the reading materials. When ordering a standard combo or bundle pack (not the e-mail versions), the entire hardback textbook will be sent with the order.
This package contains the required reading and test materials for Module 2 only.
Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the student through self-paced study on the management of neurologic impairment disorders as they affect children.
