Parent Child Interaction: Why Intervention Must Start Early

Presented by Stacey Dusing, PT, PhD, PCS

Parent Child Interaction: Why Intervention Must Start Early

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Infants born preterm or with a high risk of disabilities benefit from developmentally supportive interactions. Therapy alone cannot meet the needs of these infants without the support of parents to integrate supportive experiences into the infants' daily routine. This course will present evidence on how parent-child interaction influences development and provide examples of how parents can be engaged to support learning and development. Parent and therapist collaboration can improve developmental outcomes, and it is important that the therapist understands their role in this process.

Implications of Cognitive and Motor Interactions for Intervention

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

A large body of evidence suggests a tight coupling between motor and cognitive development. Yet physical therapy education often focuses only on motor development. This course will demonstrate the relationship between motor and cognitive skills in the first year of life and will introduce intervention strategies that can be used with infants and young children to enhance the integrated development of motor and cognitive skills. The application of theory to clinical examples will enhance learners' ability to support motor and cognitive development.

Variable and Adaptive Postural Control in the First Year of Life

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Variability is a key component of typical development. A lack of variability in development may be related to developmental delay. This course will describe the development of variable and adaptive postural control in typical development and in infants at high risk of disabilities. The role of early experience in development will be highlighted. The implication for assessment is highlighted.
