DNS paediatric 1 course

This is a 4 days course for whom have not attended the DNS A course.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology with an emphasis on development during the first year of life. Basic sagittal stabilization, postural-locomotion function, stepping  forward and supporting extremity 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 (baby demonstration)
  • 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 the principles of reflex locomotion: locomotor patterns - stepping and support function and stimulation zones.
  • Perform the basic techniques for reflex locomotion, i.e. reflex turning 1, and reflex creeping: initial positioning and anticipated movements, key zones and their vectors.
