In Angelfish Therapy's Totally Treatment workshop, physical and occupational therapists will learn, hands-on, innovative and effective techniques to offer treatment as an aquatic therapist for children, by taking full advantage of the buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and vestibular stimulation offered by a pool environment. Let our experienced instructors show you how we combine sensory integration, core strength, endurance, primitive reflex integration, and social skills to treat many problem areas at once, all in a fun and challenging environment for children.
In addition, therapists will: 1) gain knowledge about how to perform a pediatric aquatic evaluation and to develop an individualized treatment plan; 2) gain an increased repertoire of pediatric aquatic treatment ideas and handling techniques for individual therapy, as well as for small groups; 3) learn to understand the uses and applications of aquatic equipment with the pediatric population; and 4) learn how to develop effective aquatic treatments to complement current land based initiatives.
