Seating and positioning has become a standard performance expectation for most rehabilitation therapists, particularly for those practicing in skilled nursing or pediatric settings. This course is intended for intermediate learners and presents the fundamentals of seating and positioning for both pediatric and adult populations. The most commonly encountered situations and conditions are the focus; however, by understanding the basic fundamental principles involved in a seating and positioning intervention, the participant should be able to resolve almost any seating and positioning problem caused by any condition for any client at any age.
