Course objectives:

Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology with an emphasis on development during the first year of life

Identify and describe key milestones in human development  

Introduce the three level of sensorimotor control in functional assessment and treatment  

Basic sagittal stabilization, postural-locomotion function, stepping forward and supporting extremity function

Explain and demonstrate biomechanics of homologous, ipsilateral and contralateral postural-locomotion patterns; closed and opened kinematic chains, stepping forward and supporting function

Describe the basis for primitive reflexes and postural reactions and their roles in developmental kinesiology.

Assessment of baby’s developmental age. Developmental and chronological age correlation  

Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood

Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional DNS tests

Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns

Demonstrate a basic understanding of using the principles of reflex locomotion and positions from ontogenesis in the therapy (locomotor patterns - stepping and supporting function)

DNS principles for baby handling

Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies

Provide basic clinical management explanation for clinicians to better integrate the DNS approach in their regular practice, including patient education
