Use of Quality Data to Drive Instruction

Important Session Information:

This course will be presented to a predominantly school-based pediatric PT/OT audience with a focus on improving a child’s functional performance through seating, mobility, standing and transfer interventions. The MOVE (Mobility Opportunities Via Education) Program, a current activity-based approach for teaching and developing these motor skills to children with multiple disabilities, will be integrated throughout. Best positioning practices in adaptive equipment to support activity-based skill building will be discussed. The presentation will end with a case study tying together the threads of activity-based programming, the MOVE Curriculum, and adaptive equipment use within daily intervention scenarios.

Course Objectives

  1. Describe the application of MOVE Program principles for activity-based intervention in various learning environments.
  2. List strategies to increase opportunities for sitting, standing, walking and transfer skills practice within the classroom and home environments.
  3. Understand activity-based use, features and best positioning practices for adaptive chairs, standing and mobility equipment and transfer devices.
  4. Apply the current concepts of safe patient handling and mobility (SPHM) to the transfer and mobility of students with severe physical disabilities for safe and effective activity participation.
  5. Discuss relevant case study with peers and instructor to solidify understanding of activity-based intervention as supported by adaptive equipment.
