DESCRIPTION

Prerequisites: Introduction to Locomotor Training

Participants will learn manual cues and techniques for the pediatric population and learn ways to achieve a successful, training environment that is developmentally appropriate.

Pediatric locomotor training is an activity-based therapy designed to activate the central nervous system below and across the level of injury by providing sensory input to the spinal cord through repetitive, task practice to generate motor output for improvement in sitting, standing, and mobility, standing, and walking after neurologic injury.

Locomotor retraining is provided on a treadmill using partial body weight support and manual facilitation. Improved neuromuscular capacity is then transferred to overground skills that are integrated into the home and community. Participants will learn manual cues and techniques for the pediatric population and learn ways to achieve a successful, training environment that is developmentally appropriate.
