Therapy 2000 December Dallas Newsletter December 2016

Upcoming CEU Event

January 13th at Lone Star:

Empowering Children & Families with Sensory and Relationship Based Supports

Presented by Jennifer Lawson, OTR, MS & Vanessa Richardson, OTR

This event is open to all Therapy 2000 OT/ST/PT including OTAs, SLPAs and PTAs.

Approval has been granted for 6 CEUs by TOTA, 6 CEUs by TSHA, and for 6 CCUs from TPT

As pediatric therapists, we work with children with various combinations of neurobiological foundation and life experience. We work with children who have medical/health conditions that impact their physical, cognitive, communication, self-care, and/or social emotional abilities. We work with children who experience environmental strain as a result of living in an impoverished environment, one that lacks the nourishment needed from food and shelter, or from safety and love.

Challenging or problematic behavior often causes adults to jump to conclusions about intent, capacity, and choice on the part of the child. It often rattles the neurobiology of the surrounding adults in such a way that the result is an adult reaction (rather than a response) that is unhelpful and ineffective.

How might we view challenging/problematic behavior in a more comprehensive and proactive manner? How do we shift from seeing an issue or a child that needs to be ‘fixed’ or ‘managed’ to a complex system with a variety of options and possibilities? Let’s get curious about the interwoven nature of neurobiology and environmental/relational experiences in order to create better interventions and solutions for children and families.

Lone Star, 9-4:30. Breakfast and Lunch provided.

Industry Trends & T2K Resources for Successful Documentation

Presented by Jennifer Lawson, OTR, MS, Kathy Clapsaddle, MS, CCC-SLP, and Stephanie Cone, PT, MPT

This event is open to all Therapy 2000 OT/ST/PT including OTAs, SLPAs and PTAs.

This course is pending 1.5 CEUs from TOTA, 1.5 CEUs from TSHA and 1.5 CCUs from TPTA.

Course Description:

This webinar based training will review current developments within the pediatric home health care industry, as well as the primary challenges THERAPY 2000 is facing with regard to reimbursement for services. Common reasons for denials from payer sources will be reviewed and analyzed so that participants can identify personal areas of focus. Participants will receive guidance regarding the myriad of T2K resources designed to support effective documentation and service provision for children who demonstrate medical necessity for home based therapy intervention.

Learner Objectives:

1. Discuss at least 3 factors currently impacting the pediatric home health therapy industry.

2. List and describe at least 2 personal challenge areas (service provision and/or documentation) for future focus and learning.

3. Identify location of THERAPY 2000 resources to support easy access and utilization

9:00am to 10:30am
