Learning opportunities for therapists and medical professionals involved in pediatrics will transpire through lecture, case reports, group problem solving, video review. The extensive use of pictures and videos throughout the two hours will allow participates to problem solve head shape providing functional ways to evaluate and treat. The presentation will provide evidence-based clinical pathways for management of infant head shape. Differential diagnosis that may lead to head shape differences will be explored. Discussion will concentrate on progressive, effective evaluation and treatment schemes for infants with a diagnosis of plagiocephaly, including challenging cases. Current research and recommendations pertaining to the implications of plagiocephaly and increased use of positional devices will be discussed and incorporated. Red flags for related early infancy and preschool consequences will be appraised. Emphasis on home exercise programs, effective strategies, and long term follow-up to team with parents will be explored.
As a result of this course, participants will be able to:
- Appraise available research and solutions to manage the impact on head shape that may be present with a diagnosis of plagiocephaly, including helmet criteria
