Play is often described as the work of children and is one of the primary ways in which children learn. Unfortunately for many children with physical limitations engaging in activities including play without the support of adaptive equipment is not possible. In addition the lack of proper positioning and mobility equipment can have a significant impact on a child’s respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, muscular skeletal system, and develop skills (e.g. communication, cognition, social emotional, etc.). During this two hour seminar participants will learn about the role seating and mobility plays in a child’s development, the complete evaluation process, and complex rehabilitation technology (CRT) available specifically for infants to young children as well as the clinical application of the equipment discussed.

Course Description: Play is often described as the work of children and is one of the primary ways in which children learn. Unfortunately for many children with physical limitations engaging in activities including play without the support of adaptive equipment is not possible. In addition the lack of proper positioning and mobility equipment can have a significant impact on a child’s respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, muscular skeletal system, and develop skills (e.g. communication, cognition, social emotional, etc.).
