Overview / Abstract

Learn how to identify and treat the challenges that infants and toddlers must overcome when faced with a neurological deficit or simply a developmental delay. Typical and atypical development will be reviewed as they relate to one another and how the infant/toddler develops functional movement behaviors.
Current philosophy and principles of the Neuro-Developmental Treatment approach will be presented as it relates to treatment of the infant and toddler. Slides, video and observation of infant movement will reinforce typical development. Movement labs will be used to facilitate one another through movement transitions and to learn handling techniques on an infant-sized doll. Observation of an assessment and treatment session will show treatment and handling techniques on a client.


At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the current neuroscientific basis of the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach.
  • Identify at least 10 aspects of typical development via slides, video and observation of infant and toddler movement.
  • Identify at least 10 aspects of atypical development as compared to typical development via slides and video.
  • Facilitate movement transitions appropriate for the infant/toddler population on another adult and on a doll in lab.
  • Describe ways to promote carry-over in the home environment via daily activities.
