Add techniques to your toolbox for improving equilibrium reactions, postural awareness, respiration and mobility along with improving trunk and proximal stability. Then you will progress to new options for upper and lower extremity weight bearing and ways to improve early stages of gait training. This course will be taught half on land and half as a pool lab in the water. Although the primary focus will be on adults, these techniques are also excellent for children. Videos will demonstrate these techniques with adults and children with a range of impairments so participants can see new possibilities.
