Strategies for Treatment

Barbara Hypes, PT 

DVD Description:

Length of DVD: 70 minutes

This DVD was developed to accompany the book called Heads Up on Hypotonia.  Highlighted in this footage are a variety of treatment techniques demonstrated through movies and pictures on various children of all ages and with different diagnoses.

One of the most important things Barbara brings to the art of pediatric therapy besides her education is creativity.  Children will work much harder and perform difficult tasks when they are having fun and the task is set up so they get some positive outcomes.  Barbara is frequently amazed how many times a child will repeat a lifting or holding exercise because she wants to keep swinging or he wants to see the car move down the track another time.  When caregivers see how much their child enjoys being capable and controlling as much of his movement as possible, they are able to increase their expectations for their child.  Caregivers then become co-therapists during each session as well as by providing carryover of fun tasks outside of the structure of therapy.

This goal of this tool is to help therapists increase their repertoire of treatment techniques for all children on their caseloads.
