Every 20 minutes a child will be born with Cerebral Palsy (CP). However, on average, their parents will not have a confirmed diagnosis until the child is 19-months old and most of their window of neuroplasticity will be closed.
Rehabilitation to optimise neuroplasticity and improve outcomes for children with Cerebral Palsy and their families presented by Professor Roslyn Boyd.
- Tuesday 28 July 2015
- 6 pm to 8.30 pm
- Tim Winton Lecture Theatre, Building 213, Curtin University, Kent Street, Bentley
This lecture will discuss what intervention should be referred to after early detection at 12-weeks post-term. Professor Boyd will elaborate on why interventions need to promote early development of the visual system, upper limb reaching and grasping, and an enriched environment to provide potential for early neuroplasticity.
Professor Roslyn Boyd will also discuss interventions to promote brain reorganisation in response to intensive unimanual training, parent training of motor abilities, and parenting interventions that provide an enriched environment.
