LOOKING FOR A NEW PERSPECTIVE?
Pediatric therapists are looking for the most effective approach when working with their clients. One intervention, supported by current research, is the Perception-Action Approach.
This 1-hour live webinar will focus on the relationship of a child’s contact with various support surfaces and its importance for movement and function. Appreciating the implications of this relationship when considering intervention strategies will be highlighted. Components of the Perception-Action Approach, including manual guidance and environmental set-up, will be discussed. This alternative way of thinking will change the focus of your intervention with children with movement disorders.
PowerPoint lecture, patient intervention video and self-experiential movement activities will be utilized to enhance learning.
- Explain how the connection to the environment and support surfaces impacts evaluation, intervention and outcomes for the child with movement disorders.
- Recognize the relationship of the body to support surfaces during a child-initiated activity.
- Describe the correlation between manual guidance and environmental forces.
