The University of Arkansas-Cossatot Physical Therapist Assistant Program offers a continuing education course for physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, physical therapists assistants, and occupational therapy assistants March 9-10 on the Ashdown campus.

The introductory course, “Management of Adults with Neuromotor Disorders,” hosted by the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Association, will include both lecture and lab.

This seminar will provide participants with current information about neuro-developmental treatment (NDT) and best practices in neuro rehabilitation, and will review core NDT principles. Featuring lecture, lab, demonstration, task analysis, problem-solving, and experiential learning, the educational event is designed to help participants improve their assessment and treatment skills for adults with neuromotor disorders, according to a news item in the Texarkana Gazette.

Jason Knox, PT, C/NDT, will facilitate the seminar. He is the manager of a neuro rehabilitation program and a physical therapist in private practice. He has nearly 20 years of experience working with stroke, brain injury, and other neurologically impaired adults in the acute, rehabilitation, outpatient, and community home health phases of care.

Knox has been involved in teaching NDT courses for 15 years throughout North America and internationally and is an NDTA Instructor for adult patient populations and every type of healthcare provider, the news story continues.

The course costs $375 for NDTA members and $500 for nonmembers. For more information and to register, visit NDTA.
