3 Ways to Keep Your Client’s Head Up (8:30 a.m.- 12:00 p.m.)
You’ve positioned the client. You’ve tried every head support available. And yet your client
spends most of their time looking at their lap. This course will discuss various strategies to
optimize head position. First, we will explore strategies beyond the head support, including
specific positioning interventions and addressing visual issues. Second, we will explore
posterior head supports in depth, matching specific features to client needs. Third, we will
explore other options which may be required if posterior support alone is inadequate, including anterior head support. Case studies will be used throughout.
CEU Hours: .3
Power Wheelchair Driving Methods for Your Toughest Clients (1:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m.)
While some clients require a power wheelchair to achieve independent mobility, not
all will be able to use a standard joystick. Clients with paralysis, muscle weakness,
increased muscle tone, and uncontrolled movements can often drive a power wheelchair
successfully when matched to the most appropriate alternative driving method. This
course will systematically explore various alternative driving methods, including specific
features, to match these complex client needs. Case studies will be used throughout.
Hands-on time will be included.
These courses are approved for .3 CEUs each by NRRTS, an IACET accredited CEU Provider.

Power wheelchairs can provide independent mobility for many people with physical limitations. However, not everyone can use a standard joystick due to limitations in motor control or muscle strength. This course will present a variety of alternative proportional and digital access methods with clinical indicators for each. Hands-on time with individual access methods and opportunities to program will be included. Case studies will be used throughout and audience participation is encouraged.
This course is approved for .6 CEUs by NRRTS, an IACET accredited CEU Provider.
