 Introduction to NDT (Part I)
 

Course Description:
This two day, "hands-on” course is designed for those who would benefit from a more in-depth understanding of the principles of NDT. Through the use of client videos you will be able to identify how each system influences motor control and understand the impairments in each system that impede your clients’ abilities to recover function. Your clinical reasoning will be improved through an understanding of neuroplasticity, resulting in your ability to select methodologies that match the etiology of CVA. Through self-experience labs you will learn how components of movement of the trunk influence each other, and understand how they influence the involved UE for active support and reach, the involved LE for the stance and swing phases of gait, as well as subluxation of the humerus. You will learn to provide effective interventions for your acute clients who are unable to control a symmetrical posture in sitting due to impairments causing poor head and trunk control. You will also learn what to expect and what to do when your clients attempt the transition from sit to stand. You will be provided with treatment ideas for achieving functional outcomes for your clients, including increased safety and independence. Using "hands-on”, you will learn how to access components of movement of the trunk and LE’s required for a symmetrical sit to stand, stand to sit, and for transfers. Facilitation of bed mobility will be demonstrated. You will gain an increased appreciation of the effect NDT can have on your clients’ recovery of function by watching a live client demonstration. You will also be provided with examples of documentation for achievable, reimbursable, discipline specific functional outcomes using NDT.

Learning Outcomes:

Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:

· Use the principles of NDT to provide your clients with opportunities for use of effective movement strategies to achieve functional outcomes

· Identify how impairments in each system impede your clients’ abilities to recover function

· Demonstrate an understanding of neuroplasticity and be able to select methodologies that match the etiology of CVA

· Identify the components of movement of the trunk and understand how these components influence the involved UE and LE

· Use effective interventions for your acute clients whose impairments cause poor head and trunk control in sitting

· Use treatment ideas to achieve functional outcomes, including increased safety and independence

· Use manual cues to access components of movement of the trunk and LE required for symmetrical sit to stand, stand to sit, and for transfers

· Use examples to document achievable, reimbursable, discipline specific functional outcomes for use in all systems including a managed care environment, PPS and Medicare
