Day 4: 9.00 - 13.00

  • 1. Demonstrate an understanding of developmental kinesiology in depth with an emphasis on development during the first year of life. Basic sagittal stabilization, postural-locomotion function, stepping forward and supporting extremity function.
  • 2. Describe the basis for primitive reflexes and postural reactions and their roles in developmental kinesiology.
  • 3. Red flags in the development during the first year of life.
  • 4. Assessment of baby's developmental age. Developmental and chronological age correlation (baby demonstration)
  • 5. Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood.
  • 6. Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional DNA tests in children.
  • 7. Clarify how DNA corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies
  • 8. Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.
  • 9. DNA principles for baby handling in positions that correspond to developmental positions of the baby age 0-7m. Devices used for carrying babies, yes or no, how and why?
  • 10. Child with asymmetry (oblique neck, oblique pelvis, plagiocephaly and their consequences to the development)
  • 11. Demonstrations of baby assessment and treatment based on DNA principles.
  • 12. Toddlers and preschool children exercises according to DNA, easy positions without differentiation

  After the DNS Pediatric 1 course participants should be able to assess the spontaneous locomotor function of a child and distinguish between physiological and pathological movement patterns. The emphasis is put on assessment of quality of a movement and assessment of the basic primitive reflexes.
