Today, we see challenged children from all age groups and in many daily routines. We see them mainstreamed in schools all over the country. We see them in summer camps and in dance classes. Some children with behavior problems are now diagnosed early and embraced instead of shunned. All of them are our legacy and all of them need nurturing and love to grow and develop into their fullest potential.
With that in mind, the Certified Pediatric Technician program was developed by multiple specialists who designed the program to address the needs of the whole child and target the chronically ill or disabled child who needs special attention in so many areas of their lives.
Module 1: When you take the program you will begin by learning about the average child, from birth to age 21. Milestones and age appropriate guidance will lay the groundwork for future modules
Module 2: Addresses pregnancy and delivery, specifically to speak to pre natal care and the birthing process that can adversely effect a child later in life
Module 3: Takes the student through normal anatomy and physiology so that the student understands each system and how they relate to one another
Module 4: Revisits anatomy and physiology but introduces the student to the alterations and changes that a chronically ill or disabled child lives with every day as well as the effects these alterations have on other systems
Module 5: Children who live with so many health and behavior problems most assuredly find themselves in need of encouragement and support. This module addresses these needs with proven supportive techniques and outreach programs that benefit the child and their family.
Module 6: Rehabilitation takes the student throughout the physical and mental challenges that children deal with on a daily basis.
Module 7: Educating oneself on challenges of the disabled child is useless unless applied. Module 7 addresses the vocational, legal and various other aspects that promote the best outcomes and goals that we know these children can achieve.
