Influencing Caregivers to Improve Motor Outcomes in the Infant and Young Child


Is it nature or nurture? Current research suggests that both experience and genetics shape corticospinal development.

This course briefly reviews corticospinal development and discusses strategies, including relationship-focused intervention and coaching, to facilitate caregiver responsiveness and optimize outcomes.
