This subject will provide students with the background knowledge, problem solving and practical skills to holistically assess children with movement disorders that arise from changes in the neurological and musculoskeletal systems and to develop culturally sensitive, collaborative management plans for these children. Students will use a strengths-based culturally responsive approach, incorporating the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework, to assess child development and understand the variety of ways in which child development unfolds, depending on complex cultural, social and individual factors. Students enrolling in this subject are expected to have a substantive level of background knowledge of biomechanics, normal movement, neuroscience and exercise physiology, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, and principles of motor control and motor learning
