Objectives
Understand uses of evidence-based practice and the ICF model in assessment and evaluation of children with motor issues

Develop ways to assess and treat children with developmental delay, idiopathic toe walking, Developmental Coordination Disorder, and cerebral palsy using the ICF as a template, and decide on appropriate frequency of therapy, including when to discharge or discontinue therapy

Critique commonly-used assessment and treatment tools such as standardized assessments, Goal Attainment Scale, Botox, partial body weight-bearing, stretching, strengthening, and electrical stimulation using recent research

Receive information on useful, though often unknown, assessment and treatment protocols and techniques such as the COMPS, COPM, M-ABC2, and TGMD-2

Identify an observational tool that can be used to gain useful information on the movement patterns of any child
