Prechtl’s Method of the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements Training- Basic Course

Did you know you can detect children at high risk of cerebral palsy in the first few months of life?

The Basic Course provides an introduction into Prechtl’s Method on the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements in young infants. This new assessment method has shown its merit for the prenatal and postnatal evaluation of the integrity of the nervous system. Compelling evidence is now available that qualitative assessment of General Movements (GMs) at a very early age is the best predictor for cerebral palsy. This method has become a potent supplement to the traditional kind of neurological examination.
