OT PT Continuing Education Series
Pediatric Differential Diagnosis - Screening and Physical Examination for Signs and Symptoms, Part 1

Sessions to cover various topics of Occupational and Physical Therapists working in the school setting. Specific topics will be indicated in the Subtitles of the session.

Important Session Information:

This session was originally schedule for May 11, 2020 is being divided into two, three hours sessions. May 6th 12:30-3:30 and May 12 8:30 - 11:30 . Please note there will be another session in the afternoon of May 12, so May 12 will be a full day session. 

This series of courses will provide PD hours in Differential Diagnosis. It will enhance the skill level of therapists working in pediatrics in conducting selected portions of an examination including a) taking a history for the pediatric client, b) reviewing the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, integumentary and urogenital systems, c) reviewing general health and functional areas (communication, cognition, social-emotional, and feeding), and d) recognizing signs, symptoms and flags. Emphasis is on pediatric diagnoses managed by therapists and on differentiating conditions beyond the scope of practice of the therapist which should be referred to another practitioner in addition to or instead of receiving services from the therapist. The student is expected to bring knowledge of tests and measures and examination procedures unique to the discipline

Thirty hours of continuing education in the area of differential diagnosis is one of the requirements for physical therapists to treat for ten days without a referral under the amended PT Rules (November 2019, §322.1. Provision of Services).  Application will also be submitted for Texas PT CCUs. Occupational therapist are welcome to attend and course will meet the requirements for OT CCUs.  Additional days will be scheduled as separate events. Please register for each day separately. Each day is a stand alone session.
