Clinical Assessment and Practical Interventions for Praxis - From Ideation to Execution

Description:   This course will present an overview of the components of praxis with an emphasis on clinical assessment and intervention of practic problems in children using a sensory integration frame of reference.  The impact of various practic problems on functional performance will be highlighted.  A framework for observing, assessing, clinical reasoning, and identifying ideation, motor planning, sequencing, bilateral coordination and projected action sequence problems within a sensory integration treatment model will be presented.  A clinical observation-based assessment will be presented and used to develop observation skills and clinical reasoning in identifying and treating praxis problems.  Practical intervention strategies using both top-down and bottom up approaches will be highlighted through videoreview, case studies, and lecture formats.



Objectives:  By the end of the course the participant will be able to:


1.         Describe the underlying neural and sensory mechanisms of the various practic dysfunctions

2.         Observe, assess and differentiate the range of practic dysfunctions from ideation to execution problems

3.         Apply top-down and bottom up treatment principles appropriately to different problems using clinical reasoning

4.         Identify they ways various praxis problems impact on functional performance

5.         Identify strategies and treatment plan for improving performance
