Differences in Motor Development Between Normal and Learning Disabled Children (39 min.)

Presented by W. Michael Magrun, M.S., OTR/L. This video discusses the differences between normal developmental experiences and the experiences of children who develop motor disorganization and coordination problems. Understanding compensatory developmental characteristics that lead to poor transitional movement components can help therapists improve observational skills and treatment planning for this population.

Analyzing Movement and Posture Disorganization in Children with Learning Disabilities (55 min.)

Presented by W. Michael Magrun, M.S., OTR/L. This video demonstrates an observational protocol to analyze movement and posture disorganization in children with learning disabilities. Movement sequences, postural alignment, and analysis of movement components are presented.. Normal responses are contrasted with disorganized motor performance. The viewer is guided through administration, observation, interpretation, and treatment implications.

The Treatment of Movement and Posture Disorganization; 3rd edition (90 min.)

Presented by W. Michael Magrun, M.S., OTR/L. This video program has been updated and expanded to include more treatment examples and explaination of treatment techniques and results. Children with learning problems are too often labeled and categorized without a careful analysis of their functional learning skills. The ability for children to be successful in developing learning strategies depends in large part on the integration of their sensorimotor processes. These processes require the organization of movement and posture and the sensory components involved in the task. Integrated motor patterns are most likely to develop when proper alignment, postural tone, weight distribution, and mechanical advantage for efficient muscle synergies are facilitated through active physical handling. This video presents direct physical handling and facilitation techniques for establishing a neuropostural foundation for children with motor disorganization.
