Description: This two day course is designed for physical and occupational therapists working with children who have neurological or developmental disorders where hypotonia is a significant component, such as Down Syndrome, DCD, genetic disorders and some forms of Cerebral Palsy. Using the International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health- Children and Youth Version ( ICF-CY) the motor and sensory impairments associated with hypotonia will be defined and described, along with the effect hypotonia has on function and participation in a school environment. Lab and problem solving experiences will include NDT facilitation, as well as combining NDT with sensory strategies to improve postural control, stability strength and motor learning related to specific functional and participation outcomes. Strategies for use in the classroom will be covered including equipment and adjuncts such as compression garments.
