The period from intrauterine life through approximately 12 months of age is an extraordinarily formative time for humans. Our basic movement patterns emerge in utero, are present at birth, and develop through the first year of life. It is during this time that we build the groundwork for our movement and perceptual skills and pass through the milestones by which we mark our development

This course includes:

Developmental milestones including: fetal movement, nursing, head control, eye-hand coordination, rolling, circumduction, belly crawling, quadrupedal creeping, sitting, kneel-sitting, kneel-standing, half kneel-sitting, half kneel-standing, squatting, standing, cruising, walking.

The sequence of development that allows the infant to progress through each and all skill levels during its development process.

Patterns of movement that inhibit more integrated skills from developing.

Facilitating integrated movement skills and inhibiting patterns which limit full development.

All course applicants should answer the Application Questions as set out here and submit via email or post to us.
