Treating babies requires many skill sets.  This 3 day course focuses on the development of motor skills in children from birth to one year.   The anatomy and function of the inner core unit, its partnership with outer core muscles and central role in anticipatory postural control will be highlighted.  Lectures will focus on how the musculoskeletal, sensory and motor control systems combine to develop complex skills and how difficulty in these systems impacts function in children with neuromotor challenges.  Participants will have the opportunity to observe and assess both typical babies as well as those who are experiencing delays.  Practical skills will initially focus on the Dynamic Core model of assessment of alignment to optimize core function.  Neuro-Developmental Treatment handling skills and sensory organization strategies will then be integrated with Dynamic Core to develop a child’s functional skills.  Some previous NDT experience is an asset for this course.
