About the event

LEARNING OBJECTIVES FOR PRE-SEMINAR ONLINE MODULE

After successful completion of this online module, the therapist will:

  1. Be able to compare and contrast the traditional “tissue-based” explanatory model of change with neurologically based models with respect to manual therapy.
  2. Be able to describe the strengths and limitations of a postural/biomechanical evaluation and treatment-based approach.
  3. Be able to describe the variations in explanations for manual therapy effects.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES FOR IN-PERSON WORKSHOP

After successful completion of this online module, the therapist will:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to apply an effective patient-directed method of manual therapy evaluation.
  2. Describe and demonstrate the various treatment options in a manual therapy session, including cross-handed, single-handed, compression, gathering/lifting, and traction.
  3. Describe options and apply effective treatment for the remediation of a variety of voice/swallowing and related disorders.

Successful completion of the course and associated award of ASHA CEUs are contingent upon:

  1. Completion of the 2.0 hour online pre-seminar module.
  2. A passing score on the written, multiple-choice examination given at the end of the online, pre-seminar, module as well as the live, in-person seminar. A grade of 80% or higher is required to pass.
  3. Accurate demonstration of the treatment techniques as observed by the course instructor during the hands-on portions of the live class.
  4. Completion and submission of all post-seminar required forms.
  5. As all aspects of the introductory material and hands-on components of this course form the foundations of the approach, no partial ASHA CEUs will be awarded. Full participation in the entire 14.5 contact hours will be required. If you need to leave the seminar early, fail to meet the 80% grade on either quiz, or fail to meet the expectations in the hands-on performance aspects, you agree to forfeit the ASHA CEUs and not receive a certificate of completion.
  6. There is an online module containing the background information to support this work that must be completed prior to the live seminar. The module will take approx. 2.0 hours to complete. Should the module not be completed, you will be not be permitted to participate in the live portion of the seminar. The necessary link to this online module will be emailed to you in advance of the live event. The purpose of this online module is to allow the hands-on training involved in the live event to begin as soon as possible.
  7. Three weeks prior to the class the link to the online course, syllabus download instructions, directions, and other details will be emailed to you. If you do not receive the email, please contact us.
