Course Description

Every day, in continuing education courses all over the world, Shelley Mannell PT and Kim Barthel OT are asked for their insights by a wide variety of professionals who specialize in developmental disabilities. In this 40-minute informational video, Shelley and Kim discuss their thoughts on CMT based on recent research touching on a wide range of issues including the vestibular and proprioceptive sensory systems, extensor bias and asymmetry as well as the impact of these factors on vagus nerve function. Finally, they consider the implications of this information for clinical practice. This course is 45 min in length. $24.95 USD
