Education & Training

This 2-part course aims to extend participants understanding of paediatric exercise rehabilitation from physical literacy in young people to exercise prescription in clinical populations.

  • Module 1: self-paced, online learning covering topics from physical literacy, principles of working with young people and exercise adaptations. The online content is a pre-requisite for Module 2.

 

  • Module 2: self-paced, online learning plus live online workshops OR in-person workshops focusing on practical applications and clinical knowledge related to physical literacy and paediatric assessments (e.g. motor skills, neuromuscular performance, body composition, aerobic fitness) for typically developing and clinical paediatric populations.

Physical Literacy & Therapeutic Exercise
in Young People (Module 2)

This course aims to extend participants understanding of paediatric exercise rehabilitation from physical literacy in young people to exercise prescription in clinical populations.


This course is delivered in two parts; Module 1 (above) and Module 2 via self-directed online learning, and workshops conducted live online or in-person. Completion of Module 1 is required before enrolling in Module 2.

 

The webinars and live workshops will include practical applications and clinical knowledge related to physical literacy and paediatric assessments (e.g. motor skills, neuromuscular performance, body composition, aerobic fitness) for typically developing and clinical paediatric populations.  
 

Pathologies and impairments discussed include:

  • obesity

  • hypermobility syndromes (e.g. EDS, JIA),

  • mental health disorders (e.g. anxiety and depression) 

  • cancer

  • respiratory conditions (e.g. asthma, CF), and 

  • neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g. Autism, ADHD, DCD).

 

Focusing on clinical paediatric populations there will be theoretical, practical and key considerations for an AES/AEP or exercise therapists working with children and adolescents across a range of clinical groups.  
 
A large educational focus is on the application of exercise expertise to support exercise participation in young people who experience difficulties or barriers, including medical, behavioural or psychosocial challenges, to participation at school or community level.
