Plan to volunteer with MPTA at the track & field events at the Michigan Senior Olympics Summer Games to be held on the campus of Oakland University.

We will be performing the Senior Athlete Fitness Exam (SAFE) screenings and need up to 20 volunteers to staff 6 different stations from 8a.m.- 12 p.m. on Sunday 8/18/19. You will be assigned to one of the stations for the 4 hours: health & history, strength, anthropometrics, gait speed, flexibility, or balance stations.

For each 50-60 minutes spent volunteering at this event, you will get 1 PDR (under Activity Code 17) and you can earn up to 4 PDRs this day at no cost to you!

The volunteer registration link will be available after 6/1/2019.

Let's Get Moving!  The Power of Early Mobility

  (5 CEU’s Pending Approval)

Saturday September 21st, 2019

Presented by:  Dr. Lisa Kenyon PT, DPT, PhD, PCS

 

Course Location:   Wayne State University 259 Mack Avenue Detroit, MI 48201    Room:  TBD

Course Description:  The onset of independent, self-generated locomotor patterns (crawling, walking) radically changes a typically developing infant's relationship with the environment and leads to a cascade of developmental changes and opportunities. Infants and toddlers with delayed motor skills or mobility limitations are unable to reap the inherent benefits of independent, self-generated locomotion and are at risk for secondary impairments in cognition, social skills, spatial awareness, and other developmental areas. Research suggests that providing these children with early mobility experiences provides benefits across the domains of the International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health and may prevent the onset of learned helplessness. This session will detail the theoretical background for early mobility experiences, provide an overview for clinical implementation of early mobility experiences using power mobility devices such as modified battery-operated toy cars, and highlight the development of individualized mobility plans for young children with mobility delays and limitations.
