Seating and Mobility Workshop

This seminar will focus on how therapists can develop postural care programs for children and their families. We will provide lots of opportunities for gaining experience in using equipment that will support children in sitting, playtime and sleeping. Using a combination of theory, practical exercises and client case studies, the theoretical and clinical concepts of assessment and prescribing appropriately are bought to life.

This seminar will address the following:

What are the key principles that will enable therapists to prescribe seating to enhance function?
How can we help babies and infants with special needs to help them develop their seating and postural skills, as well as their play and mobility skills?
