Focuses on the strengths and skills of premature infants.

The Baby's Brain : Wider Than the Sky( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of a series examining the development of the brain from infancy through old age. This first segment examines how the brain builds itself from conception through the first year of life. Neurobiologists study the intricate relationship between genes and the environment, and a study is done to find out if the difficulties premature babies have paying attention and learning later in life can be overcome by providing an environment that imitates the womb
Family-Focussed Developmental Care and Intervention for the Very Low Birthweight Preterm Infant at High Risk for Severe Medical Complications and Developmental Disabilities. Final Report by Heidelise Als( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This federally funded project was designed to achieve three goals: (1) to test the effectiveness of an individualized behaviorally based developmental approach to providing early intervention services to very low birthweight preterm infants (and their families) in the newborn intensive care unit (nicu); (2) to evaluate this approach with low-risk, never ventilated preterm infants cared for in a special care nursery (scn); and (3) to examine the professional and organizational structures necessary to implement this care model. Four NICUs and one scn collaborated in the project. Differences between experimental infants and controls up to age 9 months are reported for medical outcomes, neurobehavioral outcomes, and family functioning. Results strongly supported the early intervention. The analysis of organizational structures found that such an intervention model requires a process-oriented relationship-based approach. Individual sections of this final report present the project's goals and objectives, theoretical and conceptual framework, methodology, findings, impact, and future activities. Tables and figures detailing the study's findings are appended, as are instruments used in the organizational analysis. Also attached are forms used for consultation with implementation sites, forms for consultation with individual trainees, forms for site assessment and trainee self-assessment, copies of several papers resulting from the project, and copies of additional instruments.

Growing babies( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Presented by child psychologist Laverne Antrobus, this is the second in a two-part series looking at pregnancy and childbirth. This part looks at the origins of infant thought. Antrobus begins by looking at the work of child development specialist Jean Piaget who meticulously recorded the development of his own children from birth to later childhood. However while Piaget believed that all knowledge was learned and not inherent, that idea has since been discredited and it is now accepted that children are born with 'core knowledge.' The knowledge of object permanence can be witnessed in a two-week-old baby, while babies as young as six weeks old have a basic sense of number and natural geommetry. The work of researchers at Birkbeck Babylab is shown in some depth. But does some aspect of knowledge and learning begin in the womb? At Belfast Royal Hospital, Peter Hepper is working with 3-D scans of babies in the womb to get a clearer picture of where the core knowledge babies seem to have at birth has come from. Premature babies often don't get a chance to complete their pre-birth development. They show a high level sensitivity to external stimulus which is particularly marked as they are often kept lying flat in busy, noisy, emergency medical units rather than floating in the womb, protected from most loud noises and flexing their muscles. Dr. Heidelise Als has shown that premature babies show a lack of development of their front brain which controls our ability to filter out stimulus. She has devised a new care plan for premature babies which more closely resembles life in the womb. Finally we hear from Professor Deb Roy who is intending to make a robot which uses artificial intelligence based on a model of learning he has gathered from studying and analysing the experiences of his baby son's brain
Identification clinique du stress chez le nouveau-né : application aux soins by Heidelise Als( )

1 edition published in 2002 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

L'enfant prématuré constitue un modèle intéressant pour la compréhension des effets du stress sur le cerveau en développement. Un modèle comportemental du développement a donc été conçu, dans le but d'évaluer l'adéquation des contextes environnemental et soignant pour l'enfant. Ce modèle met l'accent sur les seuils observables du point de vue comportemental chez l'enfant confronté au stress : il prend en considération différents sous-systèmes tels que le système neurovégétatif, moteur et l'organisation des états de conscience. Le modèle proposé fournit une méthodologie détaillée d'observation comportementale, créée dans le but d'aider le clinicien et le personnel soignant à comprendre et soutenir chaque enfant nouveau-né dans sa singularité. La solution pour l'application de soins visant à soutenir le développement de l'enfant, réside dans la réduction des signaux de stress et dans l'amélioration des signaux d'autorégulation, lorsque l'enfant interagit avec l'environnement et les soignants
