Global’s Webinar Series – Winter 2017 Recap

 WINTER 2017

Get Moving, Be Awesome! – Physical Therapy & Fitness for Adolescents & Adults with Down Syndrome

What You Need to Know


Overview & Speaker:

Physical therapy is a very important service for people with Down syndrome. While most of our children have great experiences with physical therapy when they are little, it is often phased out as the school years begin. Because of their unique physiology, learning styles, and medical issues, physical therapists are uniquely qualified to provide strategic movement-based evaluations, assess the needs of adolescents and adults with Down syndrome, and provide targeted physical therapy programs and physical therapy-based fitness programs that optimally serve our unique patient population. This workshop provides parents, caregivers, self-advocates, fitness professionals, and physical therapists information on how to develop and implement physical therapy-based programs for our teenagers and adults starting immediately!
