It’s that time of the year! The time all parents wait for – time to start thinking about getting their kids ready for school (and out of the house – YAY). That means new gear, new clothes, and new shoes. This is the perfect time for you to be reminding parents to check their kids’ littleSTEPS® for outgrowth, it’s likely they need a new pair to fit in those new shoes.
We have some great tools to help you remind your parents! We have a flyer that you can download and customize with your office info. You can mail it out or hand it out to every parent who gets littleSTEPS® with a reminder date for them to start checking the size of their child’s littleSTEPS® . We also have this great new WAITING ROOM POSTER that you can download for FREE to display in your waiting room to remind parents that they need to check to see if their child might need littleSTEPS® to help support their feet in the upcoming school year.

We are excited to announce that we are trying something NEW this fall and pairing our Successful Adult & Pediatric Biomechanical Master Class with 3 great events happening around the country.
Mastering Biomechanics by Taking the Mystery out of Gait AT IPED September 12, 2019 6-9 pm
Pittsburgh Airport Marriott, Coraopolis, PA
This course is a 3 hour biomechanics workshop on functional foot typing and gait analysis of pediatric, adolescent, and adult patients. You will learn a simple 4 step visual gait assessment method of foot typing based on a patented clinical assessment algorithm which identifies and differentiates the structural and functional aspects of the foot into 6 specific foot “types”. This 4-Step Foot Typing method is quick and easy to learn and will offer the practitioner a biomechanically based approach to gait assessment and foot classification.
Adult & Pediatric Biomechanics Master Class at Region One Thursday October 24, 2019
2019 APMA Region One/Podiatry Institute Conference Framingham Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center 1657 Worcester Rd Framingham, MA CMEs Pending
Join Louis J. DeCaro, DPM and Roberta Nole, MA, PT at Region One for a special one day Pre-Conference Symposium.
This one-day program examines both the science and practice management of biomechanics, orthotics of all ages. It will include both lecture and hands on workshops that will cover the A-to-Z’s of running a successful foot orthotic program. The program will offer attendees an over-view of the normal development of a child’s foot, normal and pathological foot biomechanics and how to classify pediatric and adult foot types, specialized content on pediatric biomechanics conditions, and marketing strategies on how to expand your orthotic and bracing program. As well practitioners will be participating in a hands on biomechanics lab that will show them first hand how to biomechanically characterize and treat almost any foot type.
Adult & Pediatric Biomechanics Master Class at the PFA November 6, 2019
PFA’s 60th Annual Symposium and Exhibition M Resort 12300 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Henderson, NV Pre-Approved by ABC for 6 Scientific Credits and 1 Business Credit Pre-Approval Pending from BOC
Join Louis J. DeCaro, DPM and Roberta Nole, MA, PT, C.Ped at the PFA in Las Vegas for a one-of-a-kind Master Class opportunity!

Practitioners will be participating in a hands on biomechanics lab that will demonstrate how to classify and treat almost any type of foot.
This Course is Open to DPM, PT, OT, MD, CD, CPED, CO and all medical professionals interested in our lecture topics.
In the June 2019 issue of Podiatry Management, our own Louis J. DeCaro, DPM participated in the PM ROUNDTABLE discussing the latest trends in Pediatrics and Podiatric Medicine.
According to Marc Haspel, DPM, “The practice of pediatrics within the specialty of podiatric medicine could be one of the best-kept secrets of the profession. Simply by offering a wide range of services to the youngest in the population, a podiatric practice could benefit in untold ways. Once a podiatric physician gains the confidence of those seeking care for their children, the rest of the family will very often trust its care with that same doctor. Savvy practitioners also recognize that the opposite is true. Often presenting pedal structural complaints of adults can also be identified in their children, giving podiatric physicians an opportunity to treat many more patients. The result could be an exponential growth in the podiatric practice.”
