Welcome to the Cusick Center for Learning – the new e-learning branch of Progressive GaitWays!
Responding to popular demand (and compelling survey results), we hereby launch the Cusick Center for Learning (CCL for short)!
I’m eager to begin this journey with you by sharing a fundamental key to boosting most of your pediatric therapy outcomes.- Beverly (Billi) Cusick, PT, MS, NDT, COF/BOC
The Cusick Center for Learning (CCL) is now open for business – offering you live interactive webinars and pre-recorded online courses to meet your continuing education needs, at your convenience and well within your CE budget. In early 2018 we sent out a survey to our customers and colleagues to better understand their continuing education needs.You have told us, in no uncertain terms, that you want 24/7 online access to Beverly Cusick’s world-class training and continuing education content. Cusick Center for Learning will also host in-person labs and hands-on training throughout the year to complement your online learning experience, just as you requested. We are committed to providing top notch education to help you build your foundations, outcomes, and resources.
On August 7th, Beverly (Billi) Cusick will present the first installment of an exciting new course series – The “Golden Rule” of Managing Pediatric Orthopedic and Motor Development.
The first two courses are as follows:
Course #1: Early Postural Control Acquisition • LIVE August 7, 2018 • 6:00 pm (US/Mountain) • $45.00 USD
In this hour-long program, Ms. Cusick (Billi) cites clinicians who have influenced her work in significant ways. On her way to sharing her new insight, she reviews key biomechanical and sensory-motor aspects of early postural control acquisition – the essential foundation for building competent limb use and movement skills. She then applies her golden rule to two cases, and opens the floor for questions and discussion.
Course #2: Expanding Postural Control into Movement • LIVE August 21, 2018 • 6:00 pm (US/Mountain) • $45.00 USD
In this hour-long program, the instructor discusses the biomechanical and somatosensory aspects of the developing infant’s progress after stabilizing the body center of mass in prone and supine positions. In this next phase of early movement acquisition, lying leads to rolling and body weight is displaced in the frontal plane and elevated off the surface into quadruped position. The instructor’s golden rule is applied in suggested biomechanical and somatosensory strategies for remediating deficits.
Target audience/Level: We invite all practicing clinicians and students of physical therapy, occupational therapy, orthotics, rehabilitation medicine, and orthopedics to join us! The content level is Intermediate: attendees are expected to know neuromusculoskeletal anatomy, kinesiology, and the components and functions of the nervous system as it relates to balance and movement.
Can I get continuing education credits for this series? Currently we are providing each attendee with the course abstract, instructor bio, learning objectives and a digital certificate of completion following the completion of the course(s) for attendees to submit to their state board. We recommend that you check with your state board or state association for continuing education requirements.
