Designing effective intervention programs to improve strength, endurance and function in school-aged children aged 5-21 years with disabilities can be challenging. This course will help clinicians evaluate fitness and function, set realistic goals, prioritize treatment and implement successful programs for children with developmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy, genetic conditions, autism, and developmental coordination disorder. An evidence-based approach to outcome measures and intervention design including exercise prescription (frequency, intensity, duration and types) is presented to improve strength and function. The course is a two-part webinar series. The webinar topics are: 1) Strength Training; 2) Outcome Measures: 3) Aerobic Capacity/Endurance Training; and 4) Interventions in Different Environments & Using Different Strategies. The webinar learning strategies consist of remote lecture and discussion, and video case ‘labs’ for demonstration and discussion on application of interventions and measures. Specific interventions included are progressive resistive exercises (weights and resistance bands), therapeutic exercises using moveable surfaces, treadmill training, aquatic exercise, yoga and active video games to promote fitness, physical activity, functional mobility and participation. Evidence on the effectiveness of existing community-based fitness programs and ideas for accessing existing programs or developing new programs will be discussed. ERI is partnering with Texas Children’s Hospital to offer this live webinar.
