Developmental Orthopedics Labs
Building upon your successful completion of the on-demand course, Developmental Orthopedics of the Trunk & Lower Extremity: A Review of Operating Processes with Implications for Management, in this immersive laboratory experience you'll acquire and enhance your clinical assessment skills; observe Billi undertaking a typical orthopedic assessment and implementing her findings; and join two participants in applying your didactic and practical knowledge in an encounter with a child volunteer under Billi’s supervision.
Enhance and apply your knowledge of developmental orthopedics with a comprehensive, two-day, hands-on training program led by renowned educator Billi Cusick.
On Day 1, she'll train you to undertake 15 postural and lower-limb assessment procedures with utmost mindfulness and appreciation for the clinical relevance of the findings.
On Day 2, you’ll watch Billi evaluate a child with neuromotor dysfunction and offer up to three findings-related management suggestions for improving functioning alignment in daily life.
Then you'll join two colleagues to follow her lead, assessing a child with her supervision and planning up to three live-in management strategies for the child.
There will be TheraTogs systems and orthotic posting supplies on hand to try, if appropriate and if time permits.
