Pediatric Neuromotor Clinic
Intensive Occupational Therapy (based upon ACQUIREc model of Pediatric Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy)
Welcome to the UAB Pediatric Neuromotor Clinic, currently under the direction of Reggi Lutenbacher, MS, OTR/L. We are pleased to offer Intensive Occupational Therapy, with constraint, to assist children with neuromotor disorders. This treatment is based upon twelve years of research and clinical application using the ACQUIREc form of pediatric constraint-induced movement therapy. The word Acquire exemplifies the overall goal of this intensive occupational therapy treatment--to acquire new skills and function for children participating in this therapy while the subscript c indicates the important component of casting.
Dr. Stephanie DeLuca and Dr. Karen Echols, former researchers at the UAB Civitan International Research Center and Sparks Clinics, led the way in developing this promising therapy. We are excited to continue offering this intensive occupational therapy based on the ACQUIREc research and clinical findings.
