May Training – How to assess equipment for paediatric clients

A full day course covering the assessment of postural systems, standing aids & wheelchairs for Paediatric clients.

This is an intermediate course considering the postural and mobility needs of the Paediatric population over a 24-hour duration. We will explore the process beginning with a client assessment and postural mat evaluation. We will consider tone, spasticity, growth and abnormal postures. This workshop will offer an opportunity to work through pediatric seating and mobility assessment in a clear, step-by-step process designed to support successful outcomes

Clinical objectives include:

  • The power of 24-hour posture support
  • Postural management of Paediatric clients while considering growth, ease of use and participation
  • The maximization of health, posture and function for Paediatric clients

At the end of this workshop, participants will feel confident in assessing Paediatric clients for seating and mobility assistive equipment.
