Event description

Description

Course Aims

This three and a half day course provides an introduction into Prechtl's Method on the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements in young infants. This new assessment method has shown its merit for the prenatal and postnatal evaluation of the integrity of the nervous system. Compelling evidence is now available that qualitative assessment of General Movements (GMs) at a very early age is the best predictor for cerebral palsy. This method has become a potent supplement to the traditional kind of neurological examination.

Main topics of lectures, demonstrations and exercises are;

  • The onotontogeny of spontaneous motor activity
  • Normal and abnormal GMs from birth to 20 weeks post-term
  • Practical instructions for recording and assessment of GMs;
  • GMs and follow-up: individual developmental trajectories and their predictive power for later neurological impairments

The course fulfils the standards specified by the GM-Trust. In addition an extra half day on the new International Clinical Guidelines for Early Diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy will be presented.

Who should attend?

  • Medical Specialists
  • Neonatologists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Registered Nurses
  • Other professionals in the field of infant neurol
