Therabounce with the CPA Pediatric Division
Join Jenn Evans for this one hour presentation about Therabounce
Speaker Bio: Jenn is certified by Rebound Therapy International Ltd. as a Level 2 Rebound Therapy Practitioner and Flexi-Bounce Therapy Practitioner. Jenn is also a prospective Level 2 Rebound Therapy Tutor for Canada. Jenn was introduced to Rebound Therapy while completing her Master’s degree in Physiotherapy in Leeds, England.
The Paediatric Division is a special interest group within the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. Our membership consists of clinicians from all practice settings, students, educators, researchers, physiotherapy assistants and administrators all of whom have a passion for promoting participation and enhancing the lives of children and their families. We are dedicated to provide resources and information for paediatric patients and their families to promote participation and function independence in all aspects of life.
Paediatric physiotherapists employ clinical expertise in the early detection of health problems, treatment, education and management of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, cardiorespiratory or acquired disorders/diseases. Paediatric physiotherapists work with children of all ages, from infants through young adulthood to promote participation and functional independence. Paediatric physiotherapists have a unique role in that they not only work with the child, but also their families in the context of their daily home, school and recreational environment.
Paediatric physiotherapists use validated outcome measures to assess the level of strength, flexibility, gross-, and fine-motor coordination and overall functional capabilities to determine participation limitations or restrictions as a result of injury, disease or disability.
Through analysis of objective assessment findings, the paediatric physiotherapist uses evidence-based treatment interventions specifically tailored to the client and their family's goals. Treatment interventions focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance, as well as cognitive and sensory processing/integration.
MSc PT, BSc Kinesiology, Rebound Therapy Practitioner
Jenn completed her MSc Physiotherapy degree at Leeds Beckett University in England. While in England, Jenn was introduced to Rebound Therapy through her involvement with a charity which delivered Rebound Therapy to children with disabilities. In addition, Jenn was exposed to Rebound Therapy while on placement in an Adult Learning Disability service. Following these experiences, Jenn recognized that Rebound Therapy can benefit individuals of all ages and abilities. She was inspired to pursue official training in Rebound Therapy and completed her Rebound Therapy Practitioner qualification through Rebound Therapy International Ltd.
Upon returning to Canada, Jenn founded TheraBounce, an organization which offers Rebound Therapy to children and adults with exceptionalities. TheraBounce also delivers Rebound Therapy Practitioner courses in association with Rebound Therapy International Ltd.
