Progressive Topics of Torticollis for the Occupational Therapist
Presented by Lisa Roehl, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy
Video
Course: #4497Level: Advanced1 Hour
Torticollis is identified by posture of the head and neck from unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetrical positioning can directly affect the child’s early motor development, specifically vision and early hand control. This course aims to progress the participant’s knowledge of torticollis’ impact on a child’s early fine motor development.

Introduction to Torticollis and Plagiocephaly
Presented by Lisa Roehl, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy
Video
Course: #4472Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course focuses on identifying and understanding the muscle imbalances of torticollis and related aspects of cranial asymmetries of plagiocephaly. Torticollis is identified by the posture of the head and neck from a unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetry positioning can cause increased dependence and pressure on the growing skull and cause flattening. This course aims to establish baseline knowledge for identifying torticollis and plagiocephaly and provide early treatment ideas for the therapist and family.

Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference: Electronic Multi-Articulating Hands and Digits, Toe-to-Hand Transfers, and Hand Transplantations
Presented by Diane J. Atkins, OTR/L, FISPO
Video
Course: #4444Level: Advanced1 Hour
This presentation is designed to capture the current advances in electric multi-articulating hands, hand transplantation, and toe-to-hand transfers. Functional and quality of life outcomes will be shared as well as several videos that will demonstrate the functional abilities of individuals who have been recipients of these advanced procedures.

Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference: Bilateral Upper Limb Loss
Presented by Shawn Swanson Johnson, OTR/L
Video
Course: #4443Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course will focus on bilateral upper extremity limb loss, pre-prosthetic and post prosthetic therapy needs, and ideas and resources for the bilateral upper limb loss/absence individual. It will also provide information on adaptive equipment for ADL’s.

Wheelchair Mobility: Optimizing Driving in Power Wheelchairs
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Video
Course: #4462Level: Advanced1 Hour
Power wheelchair evaluation determines appropriateness for power wheelchair use and then determines the optimal power wheelchair base, power seating, driving method and other needed components. Optimizing power wheelchair driving is critical to improve outcomes and includes choosing the best drive wheel configuration, utilizing tracking technologies, and programming.

continued Conversations, The CE Podcast: Evidence Based Interventions in Pediatric Occupational Therapy
Presented by Patti Sharp, OTD, MS, OTR/L
Audio
Course: #4461Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course presents a discussion about the role and importance of evidence-based practice. The conversation is centered around a landmark systematic review (Novak & Honan, 2019) which provides new recommendations for the use of OT interventions in pediatrics.

Wheelchair Mobility: Power Wheelchair Alternative Driving Methods
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Video
Course: #4363Level: Advanced2 Hours
While some clients require a power wheelchair to achieve independent mobility, not all will be able to use a standard joystick. Clients with paralysis, muscle weakness, increased muscle tone, and uncontrolled movements can often drive a power wheelchair successfully when matched to the most appropriate alternative driving method. This course will systematically explore various alternative driving methods, including specific features, to match these complex client needs. Case studies will be used throughout.
