The Development of Posture and Motor Control

Laura and Rebekah from the Leckey Clinical Team in Northern Ireland review how posture and motor control develops and explore how early diagnosis, treatment and practical real-world techniques can improve function and motor control.


  • Gain an understanding of the maturation of the nervous system, how this leads to the sequential development of head and trunk control.
  • Recognize the impact of cultural norms and 'training' on motor development.
  • Expand understanding on the need for early diagnosis and intervention and the importance of task-orientated and child-initiated therapy.
  • Learn more about practical strategies and therapy ideas for early intervention programs.
