Course Description
Physical handling is a therapeutic approach that essentially matches the clinician's nervous system to that of the client. Through various key points of control the clinician is able to feel and observe the quality of the child's movement and how the child reacts to subtle changes to shifts in the center of gravity. Additionally, the clinician can feel and observe how the child's posture relates to movement. What compensations the child uses to move and most importantly how the child initiates those compensations. Through various handling techniques it is possible to determine what cues and levels of intermittent support are most successful in achieving a more efficient activation of movement that allows the child to actively initiate improved quality and control of his posture and movement.
