Full Description:
Associate Professor Stacey Dusing, Ph.D., PT is a member of the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Department of Physical Therapy as well as a faculty member of the VA-Leadership Education in Neurodevelopment Disabilities (Va-LEND) program. She holds an affiliate appointment in the Department of Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond and Department of Psychology at VCU. Dr. Dusing is a board certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy. She teaches courses on infant and child development, assessment and treatment in pediatric physical therapy. Dr. Dusing is the Director of the Motor Development Lab at VCU. Her primary research interests include the influence of motor control on global development and physical therapy interventions for infants. Specifically, she focuses on the relationship between postural control, reaching, mobility, and cognition in infants with typical development and at risk for disabilities and interventions for infants born prematurely or with cerebral palsy.

This presentation will provide an overview of a theoretical model of intervention to jointly advance motor and cognitive abilities in infants. An introduction to 2 clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of interventions applying this model will be provided: Sitting Together and Reaching To Play (START_Play) and Supporting Play Exploration and Early Developmental Intervention for Infant Born Preterm (SPEEDI).
