development is presented within a systems perspective with the focus of
study highlighting how musculoskeletal alignment contributes to the development of upper extremity function, oral motor function, phonation and functional mobility.
The systems framework also assists when examining atypical development of
children with motor challenges and how these challenges impact alignment, selfregulation and motor control.
Participants will learn to utilize problem solving and movement analysis within the assessment and treatment process. Participants will develop a basic level of
skill in problem solving during facilitation of movement. You will have the
opportunity to learn through lectures, handling skills labs, treatment
demonstrations and in small groups. You will also have opportunity to participate in a treatment practicum with clients, which provides an invaluable opportunity to put your theoretical knowledge into practice.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1. Achieve a basic understanding of the components of movement in typical
development 0-12 months.
2. Achieve a basic understanding of the components of atypical movement
experienced by children with neuromotor challenge.
3. Achieve a basic understanding of the components of normal postural
reactions necessary for motor function.
4. Demonstrate a basic level of NDT
