Kim Toomer OTR/L completes sensory integration-posture-movement course


Kim Toomer MOT OTR/L, occupational therapist at Child and Family Development- Pineville, attended a course titled Posture and Movement- How does Sensory Integration fit in? from Vital Links, the developers of Therapeutic Listening 

The course reviewed the Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) problem-solving process, therapeutic handling, and clinical decision-making process when treating children who display motor and sensory difficulties with an emphasis on the interrelation between the sensory systems, neuromuscular systems, posture and movement.

Kim has a greater understanding of the importance of postural control in motor function and how it impacts everything we do. The NDT clinical decision making is also helpful with her pediatric clients.
