Assessment And Treatment Strategies To Boost Brain Skills In Partnership With The Pocket Occupational Therapist
Presented by Cara Koscinski, OTD, MOT, OTR/L, CAS
VideoAudioText
Course: #5453Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Children often struggle with fidgeting, attention deficits, and immature motor patterns which manifest themselves through frustration, sensory, and behavior issues. The optimal function of our bodies occurs when our sensory and motor systems are strong and able to adapt to the demands of the environment. Lack of movement opportunities and the use of electronic devices at a young age both affect the development of patterns used in the occupation of children. Occupational therapists can easily build-in assessment of body and segmental movement and posture. This session provides strategies for assessment and introduces treatment ideas for using movement to improve performance in occupation.
