Childrens' Brains, Neuroplasticity and Pediatric Intervention: What's the Evidence?
Patricia Montgomery PhD, PT, FAPTA
Thursday and Friday, September 27-28, 2018
Description: This course is designed to present the most recent empirical evidence regarding efficacy of specific therapy-related interventions. Emphasis will be on strategies for children with cerebral palsy and other neurologicbased diagnoses. Videotapes of treatment sessions will be used to illustrate major points and to present longitudinal case studies. Recent information on neuroplasticity and motor learning principles as related to the developing child is included and implications for the most effective clinical interventions are suggested. Treatment strategies based on current knowledge of neuroplasticity, such as constraint-induced and mirror therapy and treadmill training, are emphasized. The information presented should be immediately applicable to the organization of clinical treatment sessions and home, school, and community-based programs for children with a variety of developmental disabilities.
