The ultimate goal of treatment is to promote and achieve better efficiency in functional skills. Children with neuromotor disorders often have the desire to explore and interact with their environment. However they are unable to organize their movements or change positions efficiently and their efforts result in compensations that further embed dysfunctional postural problems and can compromise their musculoskeletal structure. Adapting positioning and providing handling ideas for parents and caregivers insures that gains the child makes through direct physical handling treatment are reinforced throughout the child's daily routine.
