Study Day - How to do constraint induced movement therapy with children and young adults

Study Day - How to do constraint induced movement therapy with children and young adults - Wednesday, 18th March 2015

This course covered

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of how to identify children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy who may benefit functionally from a constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) approach
  • Revise current evidence regarding neuroplasticity and how CIMT maximises this for optimum functioning in children and young people with hemiplegic cerebral palsy
  • Explore current evidence and critically evaluate protocols for constraint induced movement therapy (CIMT), specifically with children
  • Develop knowledge for the successful implementation of CIMT protocols into practice
  • Gain practical skills and experience of task specific therapy and shaping techniques used in the CIMT approach.
  • Participate in role play activities and in the discussion of case scenarios of children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy who have received (or may benefit from) a programme of CIMT

Course Feedback

This study day was held in Chelmsford and was faciliated by two physiotherapists Karen Ziegler and Beccy Greenway from Harrison training. 

The course included a thorough review of the evidence to support CIMT, relevant outcome measures to use, developing knowledge and a practical understanding of how to put CIMT into practise. The morning consisted of the theory around CIMT with video case studies and in the afternoon a chance to put the theory into practice.

The feedback was all very positive; the speakers were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic with videos of recent patients showing CIMT being used in clinical practise.
