Words of Inspiration:
It takes rare gifts, talents and rare personalities to be real pathfinders in this work. There are no royal roads. It is all a problem of being true to ones natures and opportunities. And to teach others to do the same with themselves. -Adolf Meyer, OTR/L     I will walk the road however hard it is, because only on the road can you see that yesterday lies behind you and tomorrow waits on the path ahead. The road measures life in distance. The further you travel, the longer you live. -Ma Jian     It is not the way you fall, it's how you get up. -Michele Kwan     It takes courage to show your dreams to someone else. -Erma Bombeck     Just when the caterpillar thought its world was over, it turned into a butterfly. -Anonymous     Thank you to all my friends. -Christina Bellini-Zaher

Therapy Center for Children Presents “Praxis: Evaluation and Treatment of the Clumsy Child”

On February 25-26, The Therapy Center for Children, LLC will present “Praxis: Evaluation and Treatment of the Clumsy Child.” The two-day conference will be held at the Holiday Inn, 3845 Veterans Memorial Highway, Ronkonkoma.

Barbara H. Connolly, PT, DPT, Ed.D., FAPTA will discuss new techniques that really work in the treatment of praxis. Dr. Connolly is currently Professor Emeritus at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, where she served as Chair of the Physical Therapy Department for 24 years. She is currently the President of the International Organization of Physical Therapists in Pediatrics, a subgroup of the World Confederation of Physical Therapy.

This course will provide practical and effective intervention strategies for school-age children who still struggle with motor skills that their peers have already mastered. Upon completing the course, participants will be able to define and explain what is meant by clumsiness, developmental incoordination disorder and developmental dyspraxia; summarize the proposed underlying causes of praxis problems and identify the characteristics of the child with praxis problems; identify the components of an adequate evaluation for the child, including standardized and non-standardized methods; and develop activities that would be appropriate for the child with praxis problems for home, school and social environments.

The course is an approved provider of 18 contact hours by the New York State Board of Physical Therapy. Registration begins at 8 a.m. on February 25 and the course starts on 8:30 a.m. On February 26, a continental breakfast will be served starting at 7 a.m., with the course beginning at 7:30 a.m.
