“Functional facilitation” of infants and toddlers with central nervous system damage

The author based on his own long experience defines the term „functional facilitation” in relation to infants and young children with damage to the central nervous system, describes its origins and the importance not only for mastering the future activities of daily living but also for motor development in the field of high-and fine motor skills. Particular attention is paid to the importance of the development of „functional balance” in a sitting position on a chair – as a stepping stone to further functional development, large and small motor skills and to preschool program implementation.
Instructing and involving parents in order to maintain the continuous improvement at home increases to a significant degree the chance to progress in the development of children with the central nervous system damage.
