06. Treating the 30-Month Old Who Has Hypotonia – Secondary to a Syndrome (DVD)
Treating the 30-Month Old Who Has Hypotonia – Secondary to a Syndrome
This therapy demonstration has been narrated by the treating therapist. It has only been minimally edited to allow the observer to see components of the session in real time. In this session we see how a child's motor control can be adversely affected by the child's ability to tolerate and integrate sensory input. Although this child is low tone and has ligamentous laxity, we see how adaptive equipment can provide support and alignment. We also observe the therapist decrease her input and expectations once the child begins to be upset. This child is easily frustrated and responds quickly with a "panic" type cry which is a fight or flight sympathetic nervous system reaction. Therefore, the activity must be graded to the child's tolerance. L was born at 40 weeks with complications secondary to an unknown genetic disorder. At birth she presented with Cushing's syndrome, which caused her to be a large infant. She had chronic lung disease and required a G tube for all feeding. She was hospitalized for most of the first 9 months of life. She was evaluated by PT at 20 months and was receiving OT prior to that evaluation to increase her tolerance to any type of sensory input. At the time of this taping she is 30 months old.
