Treatment of the Child with Hypotonia
This DVD is designed to be a teaching tool for treating children who have low muscle tone. It includes treatment sessions on two children with different degrees of hypotonia. Both of the treatment sessions have been edited to highlight a variety of activities therapy can emphasize for each child. The entire DVD is scripted and professionally narrated so the viewer receives direct instruction about what the therapist is doing. The narration explains why each treatment technique is chosen as well. The DVD also includes an introductory section on major problems and pertinent treatment strategies for working with floppy patients. This DVD can be a valuable learning tool for beginning through advanced therapists. It may also be used to help parents of hypotonic children better understand their child and the need for ongoing therapy. New footage has been added to show the viewer what the first child looked like at an earlier and later age. Additional footage for the second child was not available but her parents’ report of her progress is noted. It is hoped this additional footage will further inform the viewer about how to treat children who present with these types of motor control.
