Innovative extension of the educational system for physiotherapy students regarding functional improvement of infants and young children with central nervous system damage

Considering insufficient methodology for optimal mastering of daily activities by a child with cerebral palsy (CP), the key assumptions were presented that should facilitate the achievement of a set goal. They included: subordination of motor improvement to functional requirements (motor development directed at a specific goal),functional balance and appropriate motivation.
Pre-school children with CP require high-intensity functional exercises, as further focusing on motor development significantly limits the way of mastering everyday abilities and functioning in a school setting. This is important, because the effectiveness of improving motor skills decreases with age despite the intensification of exercises, and their continuation does not affect the learning of daily activities.
