PRI Integration for Pediatrics

Restoring Symmetrical Respiration and Movement to Optimize Functional Development and Meaningful Play

Live Course

Chapel Hill, NC | October 2019

"This course was everything I'd hoped it to be, and more! An excellent introduction to PRI and the science if you are new to PRI, and serves as a thorough refresher for those of us who are familiar with it." 

Course Information

This advanced lecture and lab course is designed to assist pediatric physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech & language pathologists and other members of the pediatric interdisciplinary team in obtaining optimal outcomes for developmental or acquired pediatric conditions. Participants will learn to understand the influence of inherent human asymmetry on a developing human system as they begin training optimal respiration and also the alternating, reciprocal movement patterns that support optimal respiration. Common compensatory movement patterns seen in children at different functional levels, with and without medical diagnoses, will be identified. These include the overuse of asymmetrical respiratory patterns, system extension and right-sided lateralization. Consideration will be made for the sensory processing contributions from oral/tongue posture, visual, auditory and proprioceptive senses. PRI assessment tests designed specifically for diverse pediatric populations will be presented. Treatment program development and lab experiences are designed to help children obtain optimization of gross motor milestone acquisition, functional gait and meaningful play. Treatment recommendations are provided for immediate clinical application, complete with play activity suggestions for optimal patient compliance and interest.
