NDTA™ CERT COURSE IN THE CONT PRACTICE OF NDT FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF ADULTS WITH STROKE & BRAIN INJ
Back Works Spinal & Sports Rehabilitation, Waterloo
Karen Guha, PT, C/NDT, CI
The NDTA Certificate course core curriculum includes didactic information, hands-on lab work in which participants practice problem solving and application of intervention strategies, treatment demonstrations by instructors, and mentored clinical practice in which participants work with a variety of clients. Participants assess and treat clients with neuromuscular disorders to gain a thorough understanding of each individual’s underlying impairments and the resultant functional consequences, while developing basic handling skills. Participants must meet attendance requirements, successfully achieve course objectives, perform effective assessments, develop appropriate intervention strategies, plan and implement effective treatment plans, and successfully pass the standardized final exam and competencies. Once accomplished, an NDTA Certificate of Completion is awarded. NDTA Members: $3000.00 + HST ($3390.00 CAD) Non-NDTA Members: $3300.00 + HST ($3729.00 CAD)
Course Objectives: Observe, analyze and synthesize effective and ineffective posture and movement and its impact on a client’s functional abilities/limitations. Demonstrate integration of course content information within practicum assignment: Postural control, Typical/atypical development/movement analysis in function, Evaluation and treatment planning, Treatment – analysis and facilitation of movement, Parent/caregiver training/home management, Team work, PT, OT, SLP content, Neurophysiology. Identify components of typical movement and how it relates to the development of: sensory processing, upper and lower extremity function, and visual motor function. Problem solve multi-system, and single system impairments as it relates to sensory-motor processing, upper and lower extremity function and visual motor function and chose effective NDT strategies to address identified functional limitations.
