When you perform a function-based examination there is a lot to get through. It can feel tedious and tiring for the child if you don’t have strategies to make the process fun and engaging to ensure that you get through your exam. This is part 2 of 3 videos where I will go through 9 ways I make it through an extremely thorough examination in 15 minutes or less.
Kids respond to fun, challenges and different sensory stimuli. Knowing this, you can use that knowledge to your advantage. Here are the next 3 tips of 9 strategies I use in practice.
1. Be flexible
Paediatric exams need to be flexible when working with kids and things won’t always go to plan, so what can we do?
2. Follow their lead
What can we do if a child is feeling a little unsure or nervous about working with you? It’s important to read the child and work with what is best for them at that time.
3. Get mum/dad involved
There will always be a mum or dad in the room, so why not get them to help with your exam!
