I am a thesis writer with the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques investigating osteopathic perceptions of treating children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
If you have treated one or more children with ASD, your experience can help further the understanding of osteopathic care for this population.

Develop a comprehensive, three-dimensional understanding of the human body through five days of full-body dissection using a soft-embalmed cadaver! This unique opportunity to practice clinical palpation techniques on cadavers, that look and feel like a living patient, will improve your therapeutic outcomes. Fully embalmed cadavers have rigid limbs and joints, clinically different from the living human body.
Our instructors ensure feasible, efficient, and safe dissections, while you investigate your own clinical interests. Increase your knowledge of the peripheral nervous system. Understand the three-dimensional organization of fascial planes and complex anatomical relationships.
This course is open to qualified health practitioners. For more information, and to register, please visit www.iDissect.ca.
