Pediatric therapists are challenged to use evidence based practice models to effectively measure change in their patients. Research shows that the Goal Attainment Scale (GAS) captures 20% more change in outcomes than other more traditional methods. To help therapists overcome this challenge and learn more about the GAS, Education Resources Inc. will offer a new course focused on creating and showing measurable change in neuro-pediatrics. During the course, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists will practice integrating the GAS and ICF model to plan treatment, implementing effective treatment strategies, and documenting measurable functional gains made using actual video cases while receiving thirteen continuing education hours.
This course is taught by an internationally renowned and dynamic faculty team comprised of Kate Bain, OT/CNDT and Suzanne Davis Bombria, PT, C/NDT. Dr. Bain is the co-founder of both Children's Therapy Services and the Kids+ Foundation in Geelong, Victoria, Australia and is the Director of Pediatric Therapy & Workshops which includes post-graduate education, clinical intensives and research. Ms. Davis Bombria is a Neurodevelopmental (NDT) Coordinator-Instructor for the intensive Basic NDT certification course in pediatrics for physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists. In addition to being internationally renowned for her teaching excellence and her clinical expertise, Ms. Davis brings first-hand practical experience to her courses as she is the mother of a son who has cerebral palsy.
Education Resources Inc. is pleased to partner with Staten Island University Hospital to bring this course to Staten Island, New York on April 18th, and with Portsmouth Regional Hospital to offer the course in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on April 24th.
