This course will explore seating and positioning in an overlooked and underserved population & multiply disabled children during Early Intervention (birth to 3). First we need to resolve the controversy of whether or not it is even appropriate to use devices to sit a non-sitting child. So we will examine research-based benefits of developmentally appropriate sitting and the risks of not intervening. Then case studies will illustrate application issues unique to this population and how we can better position them with or without a mobility base. Setting goals must incorporate caregivers and therapists or the equipment won't be used. The mat exam needs to address anatomical, neurological, reflex, and motor control differences because infants are really not miniature adults. Techniques must be modified for measurements, simulation, and intervention. Appropriate commercial equipment is sparse and poorly funded, so we will also demonstrate solutions using low cost do-it-yourself equipment, as well as, advanced technology in computerized carving (CNC router/mill).
