Fundamental Paediatric Practice

This informative seminar focuses on developing clinical skills in assessment and treatment planning for children with developmental disorders through detailed analysis of function. It enhances integration of knowledge into clinical practice to support enhanced outcomes for children accessing early intervention and therapeutic supports.

This seminar is designed for early to mid-career Paediatric Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Pathologists. It draws upon experiences in your current practice and provides the tools to further analyse the child’s capacity, family situation and contextual factors, expanding knowledge and practice into additional areas.

Current frameworks and best practice guidelines for early intervention are used for assessment, goal setting and treatment planning. Effective knowledge translation is supported by small group work, discussion, case examples and video analysis.

Objectives

The aim of this fundamental paediatric seminar is to provide Paediatric Therapists:

  • The aim of this fundamental paediatric seminar is to provide Paediatric Therapists:

    • Systematic approaches to assessment and treatment planning
    • Enhanced skills of movement analysis to further understand functional limitations
    • Integration of frameworks for intervention to further develop prowess in understanding complex conditions and working holistically with children and their families
    • Greater emphasis on a multi-system approach to assessment and intervention to develop skills across a range of developmental domains
    • Reflection on experience and appraisal of current practice
Facilitators

The seminar will be facilitated by Kelly Reynolds (PT), Kelsey Jamieson (OT) and Frances DiCocco (SP), expert clinicians with over 15 years’ experience specialising in the treatment of children with complex neuromotor disabilities.

 

We are now offering an option of a 2nd day of the Fundamental Paediatric Program to enable greater application of childhood disability principals.

The second day is optional and can be completed either in 2 consecutive days, or Part 2 is open to participants who have completed the one day workshop (part 1) previously. Proof of prior learning is required if registering for Part 2 only.

Day 2 of the Fundamental Paediatric Practice Program enables participants to develop targeted treatment programs applying their knowledge of the ICF and clinical analysis. The focus for Day 2 is to understand and apply treatment principles to target common activity limitations and impairments in a functional framework.

Objectives for Day 2

  • Development of treatment programs that target identified impairments of body structure and function using a multi-systems approach
  • Integration of therapy strategies into functional tasks to support skill development and independence
  • Targeting movement, task and environmental factors within therapy programs
  • Utilising adjuncts to therapy for maintenance and carry over into everyday activities.
