This is an intermediate course considering the postural and mobility needs of the paediatric population over a 24-hour duration. We will explore the process beginning with a client assessment and postural mat evaluation. We will consider tone, spasticity, growth and abnormal postures. This workshop will offer an opportunity to work through pediatric seating and mobility assessment in a clear, step-by-step process designed to support successful outcomes.
Clinical objectives include:
– The power of 24-hour posture support
– Postural management of paediatric clients while considering growth, ease of use and participation
– The maximisation of health, posture and function for paediatric clients
At the end of this workshop, participants will feel confident in assessing paediatric clients for seating and mobility assistive equipment.
