COMPLETION REQUIREMENTS:


Have fun at the course, have fun with your clients! Join us in therapeutic play - the NDT way! This interactive basic level course for OT/COTA's, PT/PTA's and SLP's will emphasize treatment strategies to promote "natural ways to play" in the child with neurological involvement. Therapists will learn introductory handling techniques to optimize postural control and visual/perceptual skills. Participants will learn how neuromotor control and influences of the sensory systems impact functional outcomes. Participants will learn basic components of Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) and how these strategies relate to NDT. Therapists will be challenged to facilitate creative play with the children they work with and gain knowledge in the value and foundation of "play". This course will take you through lecture, handling and movement labs, interactive discussions and problem -solving to spark individual creativity and basic understanding of NDT and IYT.

NOTE: Participants should wear comfortable clothing for labs.
Participants should have on hand a soft doll at least 12 inches with soft moveable limbs (to practice handling) and one toy.

For participants in person at our Live Stream Studio in Gulf Breeze, if you know of a local child/client between the ages of 6 months to 5 years with a diagnosis of CP or other neurological disorder, we would love to have them participate in the patient demo on the 2nd day of the course at 10:00am (we can be flexible with time if need be). This is a critical part of the learning experience. Please notify CIAO if you know of a family that would be willing to participate.
