BASIC COURSE 

The Training Course is aimed at physicians, physiotherapists and other professionals working in the field of infant neurology.

The aim of this four-days-course is to provide an introduction Prechtl's Method on the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements in young infants.

This new assessment method has shown its merit for the prenatal and postnatal evaluation of the integrity of the nervous system. Compelling evidence is now available that qualitative assessment of General Movements (GMs) at a very early age is the best predictor for cerebral palsy. This method has become a potent supplement to the traditional kind of neurological examination.

Main topics of lectures, demonstrations and exercises are

  • the ontogeny of spontaneous motor activity;
  • normal and abnormal GMs from birth to 20 weeks postterm;
  • practical instructions for recording and assessment of GMs;
  • GMs and follow-up: individual developmental trajectories and their predictive power for later neurological impairments.

The course fulfills the standards specified by the GM-Trust.
