The Basic Course
The Basic Course provides an introduction to Prechtl's Method on the Qualitative Assessment of General Movements in young infants. This assessment method has shown its merit for the prenatal and postnatal evaluation of the integrity of the nervous system. Compelling evidence is now available that qualitative assessment of General Movements (GMs) at a very early age is the best predictor for cerebral palsy. This method has become a potent supplement to the traditional kind of neurological examination.
