Baby CIMT Camps for children with hemiplegia under 18 months of age

Description of the Course

CIMT - Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy is a scientifically-backed intervention used in the therapy of children with Cerebral Palsy (hemiplegia / hemiparesis). The therapy involves disabling the healthy (indirectly affected) upper limb for a significant part of the day by using a cast or brace, and applying intense training to the directly affected upper limb. Baby-CIMT is a modification of CIMT and is adapted for infants and children under 18 months of age who are suspected of or diagnosed with hemiparesis. It also involves disabling the indirectly affected limb and engaging the paralyzed limb during play and daily activities

Early implementation of problem-focused therapy is important as brain plasticity is greatest in the first years of life. The most intense reorganization after damage occurs up to the second year of life. Therefore, the earlier we implement appropriate interventions, the greater the chance for better reorganization of the central nervous system, and thus for the child's improved functioning. It is recommended to start Baby CIMT therapy when asymmetrical use of hands is first observed (usually around 3-5 months of age), even if a diagnosis has not yet been made.
