Let’s Get Walking!
Gait in Paediatrics
28 - 30 October 2022
North Lakes QLD
with Suzanne Davis Bombria, PT, C/NDT
This three day evidence-based course covers the evaluation and treatment of gait in children from a Contemporary NDTA™ perspective. Analyse the components and synergies associated with gait, from the acquisition of gait and its underlying components, to the challenge of changing gait in children with a well-established pattern. Clinicians will increase both their knowledge base and hands-on skills in order to further the child’s functional and participation level. Course instruction will include lecture, lab, video case studies, and live demonstrations.
Upon completion of this course, participants will:
Relate critical movement components for the development of pre-gait and gait skills
Differentiate the phases of gait, how to measure, and the dynamic and mechanical elements of gait
Critique pre-gait and gait patterns of typical children
Examine key aspects of developmental biomechanics, kinesiology and alignment for the acquisition of standing and walking
Analyse gait and differentiate between variety of causes, including identification of multi-system and single system strengths and impairments
Explain and prioritize a minimum of the top four components needed for development of a focused treatment plan designed to improve function in a given child
Defend treatment ideas with evidence
Demonstrate four treatment strategies designed to improve components of gait
