This course focuses on the study of human development from birth through senescence, including the acquisition of controlled movement patterns in infancy, general principles of stability, mobility, and equilibrium as they influence posture and movement, and the neurological processes involved in the acquisition of motor control and motor learning.  Also discussed will be the outcomes of early nervous system injury/impairment and the quality of movement deficits throughout one’s development.  Upon completion of this course the OTA student will be expected to demonstrate an efficient understanding of the aforementioned typical and atypical patterns of development, including neuromotor organization and development and postural control, as well as the specific chronological development of fine motor, gross motor, visual-motor, sensory-motor, graphomotor, and oral-motor skills.  A combination of instructional tools, group discussions, student presentations, reflection, and case studies will be used as teaching tools.
