    Course Fees: PEDI 2 day workshop $315.00 Enrollment limited to 40

    and Administration Manual and a package of 25 PEDI Score Forms.

    Course Description: This two day intensive workshop is designed to prepare
    pediatric practitioners to utilize an outcome-based approach to care.
    Participants will learn to use functional outcome measures such as the PEDI
    to assist with documentation, treatment planning, and outcomes management.
    The SFA will also be covered. The course goals are to facilitate advances
    in functional documentation, clinical reasoning, clinical
    protocol/guideline development, and outcome-driven pediatric rehabilitation
    services.

    school, an optional session will be offered Thursday evening. This

    databases and instruction in basic skills needed to develop, maintain, and

    A workshop to learn the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM)
    20 June 1998

    Instructor: Mary Lane, Dip. P.T. and O.T.

    Course Fees: GMFM 1 day workshop $225.00 Enrollment limited to 20
    Course fees include all course materials plus lunch and a.m. and p.m.
    snacks. The course materials include a copy of the GMFM Manual 2nd edition
    and 3 score sheets.

    Course Description: This is a one day workshop to prepare pediatric
    practitioners to utilize the GMFM. The GMFM was developed at McMaster
    University as a criterion referenced observational measure to evaluate
    change over time in motor function of children with cerebral palsy and
    neuromotor dysfunction. It is a reliable and valid tool to evaluate the
    effectiveness of intervention on the motor development of children with
    varying severities and types of cerebral palsy and Down Syndrome. The GMFM
    has also been found to be useful in evaluating children with head injury
    and muscular dystrophy.
