How to Manage: Recognising neuromuscular disorders: FREE course

Catch-up image

This free course is for allied health professionals, nurses and GPs (not paediatricians). 

Refresh your skills with our one-day course. We will take you through all the stages of motor development - from head control to hopping.

Assessment of normal motor development in children is difficult enough; gait in a one year old differs from gait in a two year old. How do you assess then when gait is abnormal, what do you look for and what do you do if you think it doesn’t look quite right?

We will show you what is normal but also what is abnormal - with lectures, plenty of videos, pictures and workshops. 

This course will provide you with a framework of skills to recognise abnormal motor development and a plan of action for when you come across that child who seems to fall a lot or is a 'late walker'.

PTC Therapeutics has provided support to the RCPCH by way of an educational grant. PTC Therapeutics has had no input into the development or content of this programme.
