MQ1 Treatment Tools For Changing Tone and Movement Patterns (74 min.)

Presented by Mary B. Quinton, M.C.S.P., MBE. In this video, Mary B. Quinton discusses and demonstrates physical handling treatment tools for dissociation, pressure tapping and traction. She demonstrates how these tools are used to change tone and improve movement patterns in supine, side lying, prone, prone to sit, and sitting in a sequential process that prepares more normal sensori-motor development in babies with abnormal symptoms. Activities are demonstrated on a doll for clarity.

MQ2 The Importance of Midlines in Development (28 min.)

Presented by Mary B. Quinton, M.C.S.P., MBE. In this video, Mary B. Quinton describes her concept of midlines and their influence on development. The organization of midlines in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal planes of movement, are clearly demonstrated with emphasis on their importance for emerging righting reactions. Emergence of midline organization and righting reactions in the young infant is theorized to inhibit the development of compensatory and abnormal patterns of movement. Activities are demonstrated on a doll for clarity.

MQ64 Facilitating Righting Reactions and Competition of Patterns (34 min.)

Presented by Mary B. Quinton, M.C.S.P., MBE. This video demonstrates and describes treatment procedures that elicit and facilitate righting reactions that integrate the baby's movement patterns. Facilitating reactions over a roll and a therapy ball are demonstrated. Activities are demonstrated on a doll for clarity. The concept of competition of patterns as coined by Milani -Comparetti and how it can be applied to understanding normal and atypical development is discussed.

MQTX1Treatment Demonstration 4 ½ Month Old (42 min.)

Presented by Mary B. Quinton, M.C.S.P., MBE. This video shows a treatment demonstration of baby treatment techniques with a 4 1/2 month old infant.

Handouts are included in PDF File Format.
