Target Audience: Licensed/Certified Medical Professional (i.e. PT, OT), Rehab Professional (ATP, SMS, CRTS)
Course Description: Assessing an end user for power mobility can be an intimidating task. Decisions that are made will have an impact on the individual’s quality life, functional mobility, physical well-being, and social interactions. This task can seem even more daunting when it comes to the pediatric end user. Children have the natural desire to move, explore, and learn. Research has shown that there is a strong correlation between self-initiated mobility and the development of visual, cognitive, social, language, and perceptual skills. This course will discuss the characteristics and decision-making process for children with CP, as well as the special considerations on early power mobility intervention. Current and relevant research will be discussed as it relates to assessment, timing, and outcomes when early power mobility is recommended and prescribed for those that demonstrate the needs.
At the conclusion of the course the participant will be able to:
- Differentiate the unique considerations that are involved when assessing children with CP for the appropriate mobility device.
- Distinguish 2 motor/functional presentations that would make power mobility assessment and trial most appropriate.
- Identify 2 positive outcomes supported in the evidence for early mobility intervention specific to children with CP.
- Introduction, review of Gross Motor Function Classification System, literature review of early power mobility considerations and outcomes for those with CP
- Power Mobility Case Study Review and Parent Feedback
