Assesment of Sensory Pathopyhsiology in Cerebral Palsy

Individuals with cerebral palsy are inadequate in motor skills due to damage to the immature brain during prenatal, postnatal, and postnatal periods. These motor problems can be caused by reasons such as spasticity, contracture, weak muscle strength, weak motor control and motion repertoire. Sense integration disorders may be due to motor difficulties present in individuals with SP as well as independent from these.
Scales developed to evaluate sensory integration function were organized according to individuals with minor neurological problems. Adapted assessment methods and scales are needed to assess sensory integration functions in individuals with major motor neurological disorder-induced motor difficulties.
It is aimed that participants will learn the use of adapted observation, clinical evaluation and standardized testing according to this population at the point of evaluation of these training sensory integration functions in individuals with SP.
Participants will gain the ability to assess sensory problems while using gross and fine motor evaluation scales used in individuals with major neurological problems, as well as to adapt the sensory evaluation scales used in minor neurological problems to this population. It is also one of the learning objectives of the course to learn a scale that is adapted by the instructor to this population.
Course Learning Objectives:
Evaluation of homeostasis
Determination of the level of arousal
Assessment of emotional state
Evaluation of sensory reactivity problems
Assessment of sensory perception
Evaluation of praxis skills
Interpretation of evaluation results
NOTE: Materials to be used in evaluations will be provided free of charge by the organization.
