This chapter will discuss the benefits of prone positioning on early development of multiple systems. The chapter will also cover what current research identifies as benefits of tummy time and translate that information into practical recommendations.
The instructors will identify the benefits of free play in multiple positions (prone, side-lying, kneeling, cruising etc) and become familiar with ways to adapt play in these positions to progress motor development. Finally, this chapter will discuss the definitions, potential causes and current research surrounding Plagiocephaly & Torticolis.
