The Normal Acquisition of Skill in the First Year of Life

Presented by W. Michael Magrun, M.S., OTR/L. Development is a multidimensional process. Movement develops through the ability of the infant to adapt to gravity, control weight distribution, and develop postural control. Thinking of development in terms of milestones does not provide understanding of movement components, transitional movement patterns, or the multi-layered nature of development. This video explores the process by which infants gain control against gravity in the first year of life and emphasizes critical competencies in supine, prone, sitting, and upright control that are essential for skill acquisition.

Normal and Abnormal Development: A Comparative Analysis

Presented by W. Michael Magrun, M.S., OTR/L. This video presents an analysis of normal developmental competencies contrasted with abnormal compensatory motor patterns. Normal development of critical competencies are compared and contrasted with abnormal motor development. The significance and impact of abnormal motor compensation on the development of independent function is discussed, along with implications for intervention.
