34 iC18 ConTinued... Course summary: The developmental disabilities and rehabilitation fields have lagged behind other areas of biomedical research . As a result, practice is often based on experience, tradition, case-report, intuition, and assumption rather than scientifically derived evidence . Enhancing Rehabilitation Research in the South (ERRIS) was established at the University of Virginia to increase the quality and quantity of research through annual intensive grant writing workshops . In this instructional course, four of the faculty from the ERRIS Workshop will present interactive discussions of ) Grantsmanship Secrets 2) Collaboration – a Necessity in Rehabilitation Research 3) Principles of Grant Writing 4) Steps to Completing, Submitting, and Receiving Funding . The content will cover how to get started, seeking and responding to critiques, ten steps to successful collaboration, writing a forceful abstract, clarity of presentation, overcoming writer’s block, problems and solutions in final submission . We expect that participation in this course will greatly enhance success in obtaining grants . 6:00 PM - 12:00 AM AACPDM Reception and Dinner – Movin’ and Groovin’ The reception will begin at 6:00 PM in the concourse outside of Exhibit Hall A . Promptly at 7:00 PM, the doors to the exhibit hall will open for the evening’s presentation to begin . Special guest speakers include Mr . Duncan Wyeth and Susan Harris, PhD with her lecture titled “Challenging Myths in Health Care: The Story of Abreast in a Boat” . The Duncan Wyeth Award will be presented at this time . “Soul Purpose” will capture the spirit of the Motown era and play classic R & B hits all night long . saturday, october 13, 2007 8:00 - 9:30 AM Clinical State of the Science Session – “From Head to Toe” “The State of Clinical Science for Neurosurgery in Cerebral Palsy”, presented by Leland Albright, MD . Professor of Neurosurgery and Pediatrics University of Wisconsin Madison, Wisconsin Program HigHligHTs, continued “Innovations in Orthotics for Cerebral Palsy”, presented by Keith Smith, CO, LO, FAAOP . Orthotic and Prosthetic Lab, Inc . Vice President, American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Award Ceremony • Special Guest Speaker, Martin Bax, MD will present “Does Cerebral Palsy Exist?” • Fred P . Sage Award for Best Multimedia abstract will be awarded to Shubhra Mukherjee, MD and Adriane Griffen, MPH for their abstract titled “Teens on the Move” . • Gayle G .

Arnold Lectureship titled: “This Academy and Cerebral Palsy: Persons, Papers & Progress” . 11:30 - 1:00 PM International Affairs Luncheon Come join the International Affairs Committee for an informative program and lunch . The program will consist of an international panel who will discuss the state of pediatric rehabilitation in their country, how they started their programs, what the most challenging issues were and how they solved them . There will also be a guest presentation by Jules Becher, MD . This is a good opportunity to meet and exchange information with professionals from around the world . Cost is $50 USD . 1:00 - 3:00 PM Family Forum This special session is an opportunity for local-area parents and children with cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities to meet with the experts in the field in order to learn about the progress that is being made in research . This session is organized by the local host, Maureen O’Donnell, MD, Carolyn Chowne, RN and Bob Armstrong, MD, in association with local groups representing families and caretakers . Presentations on sports related topics will be given by Nancy Murphy, MD and Hal Honeyman .

Program HigHligHTs, continued 1:00 - 3:00 PM Instructional Courses #19 - #27 iC19 - WHaT are THey really doing? - CommuniTy ambulaTory aCTiviTy in Cerebral Palsy location: Meeting Room 2 Kristie F. Bjornson, PhD, PT; Anna H. Mackey, PhD, PT; Susan Stott MD, PhD Course level: Intermediate Purpose: Explore measurement of community ambulatory activity in children with cerebral palsy based on current evidence and research findings . To understand how current measures of mobility in children with cerebral palsy reflect walking ability as assessed by the ICF model Target audience: Health professionals, including orthopedic surgeons, pediatricians and physical therapists, who are involved in the management of children with cerebral palsy . Course summary: Walking limitations with resulting difficulty in community access are important problems for children with cerebral palsy . However, current literature focuses on measurements of ability in a clinic or lab based environment . Previous instructional courses have emphasized assessment of walking ability in children with cerebral palsy using combinations of 3-D and 2-D gait analysis . This workshop will address the different types of ambulatory activity monitors commercially available; the reliability and validity of these monitors when used in children with spasticity; the outcomes of a cohort study using an activity monitor; and an evidence-based review of how activity monitoring correlates with other measures of walking ability such as 3-D gait analysis . Our focus on measurement of community ambulatory activity is based on a multidisciplinary approach, and based on our research and clinical practice experience . iC20 - dysTonia reCogniTion and managemenT in Cerebral Palsy location: Ballroom A Mary-Clare Waugh, MD; James Rice, MD; Ruth Evans, OT; Jennifer Lewis, PT; Kylie Aroyan, OT Course level: Intermediate Purpose: This video based interactive workshop will focus on the recognition and the management of dystonia in Cerebral Palsy (CP) to identify its impact functionally and to differentiate it from other dyskinesias . Target audience: Clinicians who manage children with cerebral palsy, Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, Occupational Therapists, Orthopedic Surgeons, Orthotists, Physiotherapists, Pediatricians, and Physiatrists . Course summary: Dystonia is defined as a hyperkinetic movement disorder (dyskinesias) characterized by involuntary sustained or intermittent muscle contractions that cause twisting and repetitive movements, abnormal postures or both . The identification of dystonia is important in the management algorithm in cerebral palsy . Some medical treatments such as Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy are contraindicated in children with significant dystonia, so its recognition and diagnosis is clinically important . Therapy strategies need to be carefully selected when significant dystonia is present . Dystonia and spasticity often co-exist in CP so determining the predominant motor difficultly assists treatment . The workshop will define and demonstrate dystonia and other dyskinesias using multiple video presentations . Assessment tools for dystonia such as the Barry Albright Dystonia Scale, Gross Motor Function Classification System, Manual Ability Classification System, Goal Attainment Scaling and the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure will be will be discussed . Treatment options such as oral medications, Botulinum toxin, intrathecal baclofen, therapy, specialized splinting and equipment will be outlined . iC21 - THe role of JoinT kineTiCs in undersTanding gaiT PaTHology and TreaTmenT deCision-making location: Meeting Room Sylvia Õunpuu, MSc; Melany Westwell, PT, MS Course level: Intermediate Purpose: The purpose of this tutorial is to ) provide the needed background knowledge to apply joint kinetics to treatment decision-making and evaluation and 2) illustrate the use of joint kinetics in treatment decision-making and evaluation for a variety of gait pathologies including cerebral palsy . Target audience: Physical therapists, orthopaedists, physiatrists, kinesiologists and other gait laboratory professionals interested in application of joint kinetics to clinical gait analysis and understanding of gait pathology . Course summary: The course will review tools needed to interpret joint kinetic data and provide examples of how kinetic data provides the clinician with clinically relevant information for treatment decisions for a variety of pathologies . The course will begin with an overview of the methods . Normal joint kinetic patterns will then be covered followed by an interactive exercise in identification of abnormal joint kinetics . Possible conclusions that can be made about the pathology based on the joint kinetic plot will be discussed . Finally, the impact of trunk positioning on lower extremity joint kinetics using patient examples will then be discussed . In the second half, pathological gait will be discussed initially by identifying common abnormal joint kinetics patterns . This will be followed by case examples . In each case, the impact of the joint kinetic information on the understanding of the pathomechanics of the specific problem and the treatment decision will be reviewed . 35
