APT Free Seminar - Mastering Daily Life - Paediatrics

Aidacare Adelaide, 71 Port Road, Thebarton, NSW 5031

10 Aug 2016 9:30 AM

Children develop their own personality very early in life. They observe, feel, taste and smell the world from the time they get up until they go to bed – EVERYDAY!

Special children do this in special ways. They need mobility solutions tailored to their particular needs. Mobility which he or she has as much control as possible is crucial not only for your child’s physical development, but also for comprehensive impressions of the environment and social interaction. As a therapist, carer, family member, friend…. We want to provide every child the opportunity to develop optimally and participate in life together.

This seminar will contain tips and pointers on how to support your child daily. We will take a hands-on approach in looking at the supportive functions of devices which make everyday life easier for every age, every stage of development and every occasion around the clock.

You will leave this day feeling confident in identifying the needs of children and their families, in all aspects of the 24 hour day. You will be able to clearly articulate your clinical reasoning in selecting features required in assistive devices for children.
