Product Description

Treating a Child Who Has Low Tone – Secondary to Down Syndrome
Barbara Hypes, PT 

DVD Description:

Length of DVD: 90 minutes

This therapy demonstration has been narrated by the treating therapist.  It has only been minimally edited to allow the observer to see components of the session in real time.  We see the following:

  • How long it takes the child to activate new control;
  • How long the therapist sustains work in each position;
  • How the child becomes frustrated, then recovers without being rescued; and
  • How long the therapist actually WAITS to allow the child to integrate and activate new motor control.

It is intended that observing this DVD will assist the therapist in how to treat a child who has low tone secondary to a diagnosis of Down Syndrome.

Learning Objectives:

The observer will learn:

  1. How the child becomes more integrated simply by lifting her into space to increase the need for co-activation.
  2. How to facilitate the child into space while keeping their body supported on the surface.
  3. How to help the child become more stable into the surface by facilitating the child 3 dimensionally into space.
  4. How to promote active assisted strengthening by making the extremity weight less yet stay dynamic.
