B1 Helping Babies Move (40 min.)

Presented by Christine A. Nelson, Ph.D., and Barbara Bour, P.T. This video contrasts normal baby movement with the movement components of babies at one year of age with developmental delay. Treatment examples for facilitating more efficient movement experiences are presented with one-year-old babies diagnosed with developmental delay.

B2 Getting Started With the Severely Involved Baby (52 min.)

Presented by Christine A. Nelson, Ph.D. Treating the severely involved baby is challenging and difficult. Inhibiting abnormal patterns from becoming functionally used by the baby is extremely important. This video demonstrates physical handling techniques with three babies, emphasizing trunk and respiratory function as well as basic postural transitions for improving functional motor patterns.

Presented By Suzanne R. Hayes, M.S., R.N., C.R.R.N. This video provides the therapist and caregiver with the essential information and techniques of infant massage. Each massage stroke is clearly demonstrated with special attention to the infant's individual needs.

A special "tips" section is included that deals with colic, constipation, and other concerns.
