Research indicates the ability to organize anticipatory/feedforward postural control in sitting and standing is a precursor to independent walking. Therefore, understanding anticipatory postural control is critically importance for treatment planning and the developmental of intervention strategies to enhance functional activity and participation. To translate the research evidence into clinical practice, clinical cases, videos, participant labs and goal directed activities will offer an opportunity for participants to develop and practice intervention strategies that can be incorporated into their treatment sessions when they return to the clinic.
