This dynamic course will concentrate on progressive, effective evaluation and treatment schemes for infants and young children with a diagnosis of torticollis with or without plagiocephaly, including challenging cases. The course is designed to provide therapists with current research and recommendations pertaining to the implications of torticollis, sleep posture and increased use of positional devices on infant postural and motor development. Current evidence-based clinical pathways and guidelines for management of torticollis and infant head shape, including Clinical Practice Guidelins from APTA will be discussed and incorporated. Red flags for related early infancy and preschool diagnoses will be appraised as we explore diagnosis impact on movement system and resulting impairments in gross, fine and speech motor skills.Current functional, clinically oriented evaluation and evidence based treatment strategies for infants and young children that can be integrated into routines and play will be provided.
