Course Description

There are so many layers that can contribute to the difficulties our children experience. Sensory processing, postural control, attachment, motor control, emotional regulation and cognition; all of these factors can play a part. When looking at the big picture, what are the clues that lead us to effective assessment and treatment?

Join Kim Barthel, OTR and Shelley Mannell, PT for a unique series of live online learning. Participants will be invited to submit a video of a client for analysis and with the ones that are selected, participants will have the opportunity to clinically reason together with the instructors. Video analysis will allow the group to collectively view (and review) the diverse needs of the children observed. What do we notice that is working for the child functionally? What points towards an area of challenge? How might clinicians know which lens to use when watching a child interact with their environment?

Shelley and Kim have worked and taught together for over 25 years. Their interaction around supporting children is a partnership, a working conversation that serves as a model for considering multiple factors in assessment and treatment. The highlight is their collaboration, deepening the understanding around how all these factors can come together in forming a cohesive plan for any
individual child.
