Throughout the pre-adolescence and adolescence phases of development pediatric clients will likely experience various changes in areas such as physical growth, appearance, cognition, emotional, and psychosocial development. All of these changes can have a significant impact on not only the equipment selected for a pediatric client, but also the level at which the client is directly involved in the entire complex rehabilitation technology provision process. During this two hour educational session participants will learn about considerations to keep in mind when recommending seating and wheeled mobility equipment for this unique population. Topics including the complete evaluation process, potential impacts of human development, and key aspects of equipment will be reviewed.
