This two-day course is designed for experienced physical and occupational therapists and speech language pathologists currently working with babies.  Lecture information will focus on NDT Infant Treatment Principles. Labs and videotapes will be used to problem solve system impairments for infants in general, and for the specific infants who will be treated in demonstration sessions. Labs with dolls will augment the therapist’s understanding of infant treatment techniques. Participants should wear comfortable clothes for labs. The book by Lois Bly, Baby Treatment Based on NDT Principles will be used as the text.

OBJECTIVES: At the completion of this course participants will learn to:
1.    Identify NDT principles of infant treatment and contrast how it is different from treatment with older children. 
2.    Identify infant stress signs and determine their significance in infant development and treatment.
3.    Describe the importance of play as a modality for infant treatment.
4.    Observe and critically analyze demonstrations of baby assessment, treatment techniques and sequences.
5.    Identify and analyze system impairments in babies with varied presentations while watching videotapes of infant assessments and live treatment demonstrations.
6.    Apply baby treatment facilitation techniques with dolls. 
Each participant must have a soft doll, approximately 24” long for this course.
