Gait Training in Cerebral Palsy
Presenter(s): Roberta O'Shea

Interventions and Outcomes. Typically developing children practice walking 50% of waking hours while becoming independent ambulators.  Children with cerebral palsy have much less opportunity to practice.  Studies of effective motor interventions favor intensity of training as the single most important factor in motor learning.  It is not surprising then, that children with CP do not develop...

Instrumented Gait Analysis - Recording
Presenter(s): Amy Winter Bodkin

Course Description: The purpose of this webinar is to introduce participants to instrumented gait analysis (IGA). IGA can provide detailed information about complex gait patterns that are difficult to describe. Kinematics, kinetics, dynamic EMG, plantar pressures, temporal-distance measures and oxygen consumption will be presented and analyzed. Suggestions for appropriate referrals for IGA and...

Over ground walking and body weight supported walking improve mobility equally in cerebral palsy: A randomized controlled trial. Clin Rehabil 0269215514566249, first published on January 30 2015 doi:10.1177/0269215514566249​

Locomotor Treadmill Training in Cerebral Palsy
Presenter(s): Amy Winter Bodkin

Locomotor treadmill training is used in the clinic by physical therapists with individuals who have cerebral palsy (CP). There continue to be questions about the effectiveness of this intervention as well as the optimal way to provide it. This webinar will focus on methods of assistance that can be used during LTT, such as body weight support and assistance provided mechanically or by trainers...

Speed & Spasticity in Cerebral Palsy - More Linked Than You Think
Presenter(s): Nechama Karman

In this 90 minute webinar we will examine the interaction between spasticity, motor strategy and biomechanics as they apply to gait in children with cerebral palsy. We will discuss how to have an impact on these via the manipulation of gait training parameters in the treatment of children. We will review use of BWS to accomplish specific targeted outcomes.
At the conclusion of this...

Determining the impact of intensive transdisciplinary motor learning training on functional skills in children with cerebral palsy
Presenter(s): Roberta O'Shea

This session will review of intensive transdisciplinary motor learning training using the pedagogy of transdisciplinary Conductive Education (TCE). The CE philosophy looks at motor impairments from a learning perspective. TCE incorporates motor learning and motor control, intensity, practice time, and rhythmic initiation to improve orthofunction in individuals with motor disorders. We will...

Adults with Developmental Disability-Cerebral Palsy
Presenter(s): Susan Ostertag

Through the use of case studies, literature, and clinical experience we will discuss the role of Physical Therapy in adults with cerebral palsy. The presentation will include common problems and limitations experienced by individuals with CP throughout the lifespan. We will discuss strategies that may be used to maximize function and mobility while minimizing the risk for secondary medical...
