Before attending this course, Level 1: Golden rule: Acquisition of postural control in infants has to be completed.
In this webinar, Ms. Cusick discusses the biomechanical and somatosensory aspects of the developing infant’s progress after stabilizing the body center of mass in prone and supine positions. In this next phase of early movement acquisition, lying leads to rolling and body weight is displaced in the frontal plane and elevated off the surface into quadruped position. The instructor’s golden rule is applied in suggested biomechanical and somatosensory strategies for remediating deficits

- Compare the location of the body center of mass (COM) in an infant to that of an adult.
- Explain the effect of a face-side shift of the head on reaching ability, relative to prone positioning.
- Compare the influence of a face-side weight shift and a skull-side weight shift on hip extension range of motion on the loaded side, relative to prone positioning.
- Compare the influence of a face-side weight shift and a skull-side weight shift on weight loading on the pelvis, relative to prone positioning.
- Describe the derotational righting reflex.
- Name two movement requirements for completing a roll from side-lying with all limbs flexed into prone position.
- Describe two strategies for moving from prone lying into the quadruped (i.e. hands and knees) position.
- List four benefits of rocking forward and backward in quadruped position.
- Suggest 2 strategies that would simplify the task of gaining stability and movement in quadruped position for a child who has difficulty loading the limbs.
