At the completion of this seminar, course participants will be able to:
Discuss key elements of behavioral, developmental and feeding assessment for high risk infants in the NICU and at home.
Demonstrate assessment strategies used with high risk infants in the NICU, including components of the Dubowitz Optimality Scale, the NICU Network Neurobehavioral Scale (NNNS), the Preemie-Neuro and the Neonatal Eating Outcome Scale.
Incorporate assessment and treatment strategies appropriate at different postmenstrual ages and across and across different medical interventions, including therapeutic handling, and sensory-motor activities that improve function and developmental skills.

This two day seminar will focus on practical strategies to address behavioral, developmental and feeding assessment and intervention with high risk infants in the NICU. Factors related to parenting, the NICU environment, and the effects of altered sensory and motor experiences will be explored. Through video analysis, demonstration and case examples, participants will practice their clinical problem-solving skills for this specialized setting. Participants will enhance their observational and clinical skills, improving early identification of therapeutic needs that define targeted interventions in the NICU and during the transition home.
