LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Select, perform and assess the appropriateness of different aquatic handling techniques under the following therapeutic scenarios: non-weight-bearing, hydrophobic, asymmetric center of buoyancy, fragile skin, hypersensitivity to touch, non-verbal communication, poor head and trunk righting skills, aspiration risk (lecture, lab).

 

2. Teach (to a partner) 1-2 aquatic therapy tasks designed to capitalize on hydrodynamic and thermal properties of water (lab).

 

3. In order to meet the demands of a mock therapeutic situation, alter movement difficulty by manipulating 2-3 of the following: buoyancy, velocity, streamlining, levers, frontal surface area, and momentum (lab).

 

4. Design 3-4 therapeutic movements, tasks, or exercises using fundamental hydrodynamic and thermal principles (lab).

 

5. Compare and contrast 8-10 general precautions and contraindications to aquatic therapy (lecture).

 

6. Collaborate with a group to appropriately choose 8-10 types of aquatic therapy equipment in order to treat a mock patient (lab).
