This curriculum is an introduction to the treatment of children, learning how to communicate with a Child.
Finding the sacred meeting place where they exist and perceive the world.
There is no science that deals with the perception of children.
Treatment of children is not about cranial bones, it is about Primary Respiration.
The forces of healing in a child are not musculoskeletal.
Children can’t be treated successfully in pieces; they need to be treated as a Whole.
Paediatrics is about the study of childhood diseases;
These courses are about the treatment of children and their relationship to Health

Treatment of children Phase 1-3 have been taught, since 2007, in Australia (Qld, WA and Victoria)


Treatment of Children 1:

By the end of the course, the osteopath will:

  • Acquire an understanding of how to communicate with a Child.
  • Explore the indirect approach to osteopathic treatment of children
  • Clinically assess and treat the pre and post-natal maternal pelvis.
  • Develop the skill to evaluate and treat the newborn.
  • Diagnose the quality of Fluid Drive and its capacity for unfolding, thus assessing the prognosis for future growth and development.
  • Explore osteopathic treatment of developmental hip conditions such as Slipped Capitis Femoris
  • Develop a Relationship with the Child/ Health/ Embryo
 
Treatment of Children 2:

The course will cover: 

  • Diagnostics and the normal qualities of a child.
  • First Breath
  • Evaluate Breathing dynamics, Thoracic Respiration neutral and Primary Respiration. 
  • Therapeutic forces of growth and development and fluid body dynamics. 
  • the clinical and palpatory skill to differentially diagnose somatic/visceral dysfunction, subluxation, dislocation, deformity- orthopaedic, genetic and metabolic field
  • the assessment of a child’s metabolic trophicity including the ability to recover metabolic function, following allostatic overload.
  • Power for change, transmutation, remolding and maintaining the treatment 

Treatment of Children 3: 

By the end of the course, the osteopathic physician will:
  • Develop perceptual skills to distinguish between periosteal dura, meningeal dura and CNS in a child and then utilize the therapeutic forces appropriately for treatment. 
  • Assess the teething sequence, differential diagnosis between teething and acute otitis media, understand the neurobiological basis of low grade fever and the neuro-endocrine-immune connection to the 3rd ventricle. 
  • Evaluate the function of the sagittal suture and its clinical relevance 
  • Evaluate spatial orientation of craniometrics and its therapeutics in management of children with Down Syndrome.
