What is this new concept of physical literacy?

A child’s motor skills are one of the most important predictors of high levels of physical activity in adulthood (Stodden, 2017). This training will address the innovative concept of physical literacy and the stages of development between 0-12 years of age from the perspective of overall health and academic achievement.

Physical literacy represents the set of fundamental abilities and values (motivation, confidence, foundations, skills, knowledge, and responsibilities) that enable a person to move with mastery in a variety of physical, athletic, and rhythmic activities.

Joël Beaulieu is a doctoral student in psychopedagogy who trains and coaches several professionals in the field of child motor development. He has been a consultant for the Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport and a specialist in education sciences at the Département des sciences de l’activité physique at UQTR. Currently, he is the founding president of the consulting firm A+ Action, which specializes in motor skills and sports pedagogy. Joël Beaulieu, Ph.D. (c), a doctoral student in psychopedagogy specializing in motor skills, offers training on fundamental motor skills to be developed in children aged 5 to 12.

You will learn:

  • Developmental milestones in children
  • Children’s basic physical activity needs
  • Stages of physical literacy
  • Components of gross and fundamental motor skills
  • Impacts of physical literacy on health and academic achievement
  • Roles of the health professional on a child’s motor skills level
  • Rapid screening tests for gross motor skills. Variations of standardized tests (Ulrich; MABC)
  • Qualitative assessment of selected fundamental motor skills
  • Demonstration of stimulation exercises to improve the deficiencies targeted in the tests

Every healthcare professional who is a member of an order or association must complete hours of continuing education each year. All of our courses are designed to help you accumulate these continuing education hours. However, the number of credits may vary depending on your profession and location. The information below is for information purposes only. We recommend that you confirm with your professional order and/or association.

For your information, Bia education aims to accredit its online education content in the U.S. and Europe as quickly as possible.

All healthcare and sport professionals are welcome to attend the course.

The instructor speaks in French and handout is also available only in French.

Yes, it is possible to extend access to your courses through our Bia membership. This membership allows you, among other benefits, to enjoy extended access to the courses beyond the initial 6 months.

Each health professional who is a member of a college or association must complete continuing education units (CEU) annually. Here is some information about kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physiotherapy technologists.

Kinesiologist, FKQ

All accredited members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec (FKQ) must accumulate 30 credits of recognized continuing education every two years from the year of their accreditation. These credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ. In order to facilitate your task of analyzing the credits granted to your course, the FKQ Continuing Education Committee gives you access to an equivalency grid.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesiologists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Kinesiologist-kinesitherapist, A.K.K.O.M.Q.

All members of the A.K.K.O.M.Q. must accumulate continuing education units. The association intends to ensure the safety and quality of kinesiology and kinesiology-kinesitherapy interventions, by requiring its members to maintain and improve their knowledge through the many continuing education courses offered annually, and to put their skills into practice while respecting the code of ethics. Credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesitherapists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Physiotherapist and physiotherapy technologist, OPPQ

In the case of physiotherapists, each member must have a minimum of 45 hours of continuing education units (CEU) during the reference period, which is three years. Of these 45 hours, at least 30 hours must be accumulated in formal learning activities. The remaining continuing education hours can be accumulated in autonomous, formal learning activities or in a combination of both categories.

A CEU is equivalent to one hour of course, which is the actual time spent by the member to acquire or update his or her knowledge or skills. In the context of a formal activity, the member is in a learning situation when acting as a participant. Time spent on breaks, meals or any other activity without academic content should therefore be subtracted from the calculation of CEUs.

A formal learning activity is defined as an activity designed and delivered by experts in the subject matter and with a predetermined structure, content, objectives and duration. All the course offered by Bia education are therefore likely to be considered as a formal learning activity. During your course at Bia education, you will receive a certificate attesting to the number of hours of continuous education granted to the event.

Then, it is the physiotherapist’s role to define whether the suggested training theme is related to his or her practice and will allow him or her to optimize his or her professional competence.
