The purpose of this website is to promote the Perception-Action Approach to Intervention for Children with Movement Disorders and to offer training to interested clinicians.
The Perception-Action Approach is founded on current theories of learning and development. Modern principles of neuroplasticity, movement variability, complexity and adaptability are utilized in this approach. It is appropriate for use by pediatric clinicians, without a need for technical or specialized equipment. Instead, this child-driven approach considers the child and his or her environment as a single, dynamic, interacting system. The Perception-Action Approach employs the environmental set-up and unique manual therapeutic guidance. Recent research supports the use of this approach and highlights its benefits for children with movement disorders.
