This course is relevant to Physical and Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and their assistants, working with children that are diagnosed with neuromuscular movement disorders, autism or spectrum disorders. Current research is finding that pediatric cerebellar dysfunction presents as complex involvement affecting motoric, affective, communicative and cognitive function. Treatment principles will focus on the system, posture and movement impairments and contextual factors that affect balance, posture and mobility. Video presentations will be used to identify subtle motoric qualities that are indicative of cerebellar dysfunction.
