Learn how this connection impacts
intervention and outcomes for
children with movement disorders through
the lens of
the Perception-Action Approach.
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.
