Topics covered to provoke critical thinking will include: the pediatric assessment team and process; the differences between the pediatric pelvis and adult pelvis; the benefits of early intervention from a positioning, standing and wheeled mobility perspective; considerations for growth and development as well as the management of tone. Time will be spent reviewing commons symptoms that we all see in the seated child, which will lead to an interactive discussion on whether we address the symptoms with band aids or do we feel confident that we are understanding the actual cause of the problem and therefore prescribing solutions. A child with seating/mobility needs from the local area will join us during this program if at all possible. The attendees will participate in a hands-on evaluation, translating assessment findings to product features as well as discuss the key components of what a letter of medical necessity for the prescribed/recommended equipment might need to include. Utilizing a combination of lecture, discussion and hands on exercises, the attendees will understand evaluation strategies, clinical applications and documentation requirements for their pediatric clients. Each person will leave with immediately applicable idea.
