Children with Motor Disorders of Genetic Etiology

Presented by Beate Peter, PhD, CCC-SLP

Children with Motor Disorders of Genetic Etiology

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Motor disorders of genetic origin can affect an individual on many levels, requiring services from multiple specialists, including speech-language pathologists (SLPs), occupational therapists (OTs), and physical therapists (PTs). In some cases, these professionals work on the same underlying core deficits, for instance motor coordination; but a shared understanding of the genetic mechanisms and collaborative clinical approaches is often missing. How can a better understanding of genetics lead to more effective and collaborative clinical services? This course provides a case-based introduction to fundamental concepts in genetics, such as chromosomal changes versus small DNA mutations, and the downstream effects of such variations on entire motor systems. The role of the genetics professional as a member of the interprofessional team is outlined. Participants will learn how to conduct an assessment designed to identify genetic red flags and how to use this knowledge toward appropriate referrals and interprofessional practice.
