"Dollar Tree" Therapy- Innovative, Inexpensive, and Engaging Treatment Solutions To Maximize Functional Outcomes

Ever left a course disappointed with the lack of practical treatment ideas to help enhance your practice? This course will expand your treatment tool box with a multitude of evidenced based therapies treating common orthopedic and neuroogical conditions with little to no expense. Especially with recent cut backs, therapists are left with decreasing supplies to meet the needs of their clients. Learn how effective treatment tools can be transformed from common objects found around the house, workplace, or even discount stores, to effective "out of the box" therapies. Additionally, explore numerous free or inexpensive apps that aid with time consuming assessments as well as serve as treatments. These treatment solutions will not only target such areas as maximizing ROM, strength, proprioception, balance, cognition, fine motor skills, and overall function, but break tedious and boring treatments into multisensory, fun function interventions.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this program participants will be able to:

  1. Reproduce how to adapt such items as rubber bands, magnets, pipe cleaners, and other everyday items to treat fine motor impairments
  2. List common objects that can maximize strength, upper and lower body range of motion
  3. Recognize several untraditional but therapeutic uses for kinesiology and duct tape
  4. Identify several free or inexpensive apps that can be used as an effective treatment or assessment tool
  5. Identify alternative, cost effecive materials that can be used to make common orthotics use to treat orthopedic & neurological conditions
  6. Explain how and what to use to work on lower and upper body function using rhythmic auditory cueing
  7. List & perform a variety of interactive, fun, evidenced based treatment techniques to improve functional performance to maximize coordination, ROM, proprioception, etc.

This course has been approved for 6 CEs from TSHA, TOTA and TPTA.
