This PDO aims to extend participants understanding paediatric exercise rehabilitation from the development and training fundamental movement skills and motor proficiency, to paediatric assessments and exercise prescription in clinical paediatric populations.
In addition to a series of online lectures, the face-to-face workshops will contain practical components including paediatric assessments focused on standardised movement assessments, and physiological and strength assessments for clinical and typically developing children and adolescence. The design and implementation of training programs for FMS and fitness in children and adolescents will also be highlighted providing attendees with practical strategies and tools to use in typically developing and clinical populations.
Focusing on clinical paediatric populations there will be theoretical, practical and key considerations for an exercise physiologist or movement therapist working with children and adolescents working across a range of clinical groups. Pathologies and impairments discussed include obesity and metabolic syndrome, cancer, neurological, musculoskeletal and neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g. Autism, ADHD, DCD). Participants will be required to demonstrate the selection of appropriate assessment techniques, interpretation of results and implementation of exercise rehabilitation program based on assessment results across a variety of cases and conditions.
A collaborative group of clinicians, academics and researchers with a vast range of experiences in both paediatric clinical practice and research. Additionally, the team delivers unique community based paediatric exercise programs catering for children across a range of ages and clinical presentations including neurodevelopmental conditions, physiological impairments and psychosocial conditions.
