This course will provide the knowledge base and practical skills for use of casting materials to manage common impairments in pediatric and neurologic patient populations. Participants will learn to identify appropriate candidates for casting, problem-solve which materials and techniques are appropriate for various clinical presentations, and evaluate progress. The course will emphasize the current evidence related to casting and foot/ankle intervention, the importance of differential diagnosis, and the use of the therapist’s manual intervention before and during casting to maximize therapeutic effects of casts. Attendees will learn to align casts optimally for therapeutic gait and standing, and to problem-solve orthotic selection after casting is complete. The course will include multiple opportunities to learn and apply hands-on practical skills which can be carried over to the clinical setting after course completion.
