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 four 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.
- Identify three research studies that address the management, prevention and/or treatment of head shape (including helmet criteria) for the diagnosis of plagiocephaly in children
- Choose a treatment strategy that incorporates current research findings and addresses the child’s functional goals
- Recognize the possibility that plagiocephaly/brachycephaly is preventable or can be less impactful to the child and family with early parent education and early referral
- Choose two treatments that reduce or prevent plagiocephaly / brachycephaly in children
- Identify three facilitators and three barriers to helmet treatment.
