Our website is intended for a wide audience that is somehow connected with young children. These are doctors of different specialties (pediatricians, neonatologists, neurologists, physical therapy doctors, etc.), special teachers, and defectologists. But first of all, these are parents who want to develop their children harmoniously in the first year of life, and parents whose children suffer from motor disorders.
Your education, age, gender, and initial level of training do not matter for effective rehabilitation with our method. What is needed is enthusiasm and strict, scrupulous compliance with all recommendations. We do not encourage you to immediately believe in the high effectiveness of at first glance simple exercises and recommendations. You will have faith in our method and your own strength when you achieve the first results.
The development of the child's motor sphere is determined by three main factors: heredity, presence of nervous system damaging factors during pregnancy and perinatal period as well as the effect of the environment created around the child after birth.
With healthy heredity and an intact сentral nervous system (CNS), there are different variants of movement development in children. Someone cannot army crawl, someone cannot crawl on all fours, bypassing these stages. The start time of walking varies greatly, and sometimes it is mastered first, and crawling is mastered later. There are children who are «lazy» and active, «tame» and independent. However, in a year - a year and two months, children begin to walk and become surprisingly similar to each other.
So, the process may differ, but the result is the same.
The similarity of the final results is provided by a special, genetically transmitted program for the development of child's movements, which is implemented in the absence of significant damage to the Central nervous system in social conditions. Differences indicate the significance of the third factor: the environmental influence on the child.What is the environment and what are its components?
Therapeutic and developmental activities for a healthy child, as practice shows, are used infrequently.
Conclusion: the main role in the variability of development is played by everyday routine.
If healthy children develop so variously in the first year of life, being under the influence of routine factors, then children with CNS damage, who have significantly less resistance to pathological influences, are even more susceptible to them!
Let's turn to the official medical data on the child’s motor development in the first year of life.

What are the outcomes?
The life of a child is not considered as a factor affecting the development of the child at all.
Vague and incomplete is the idea of the healthy child’s development (not to say about premature babies, children with perinatal CNS damage?!). Developing methods help some people, do not help others, they can not be called effective and universal, because any method of developing motor activity should be based on knowledge of natural development algorithms. And it turns out there is no knowledge?
Many will say: this can't be! Children are treated and cured?!
In fact, children in modern conditions can only count on one assistant, powerful and reliable, but still not omnipotent – neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to self-repair after lesions). It cures in most situations. But it needs an ideal working environment, which consists of stimulating skills based on a natural algorithm of development in the appropriate living conditions.
The ideal development algorithm (IDA) is a chain of key motor skills, that is, certain movements worked out until automatism. Each of them is a consequence of the development of the previous one.
Is there an algorithm for the ideal development of the child's movements? How can I contribute to its implementation? How can I help a healthy child develop harmoniously instead of interfering with them?
Can this algorithm be used in evaluating the motor development of children with CNS lesions?
Is it possible to use this algorithm in the treatment of a child with CNS damage? How to provide an algorithm for the ideal motor development of a premature child and a child with CNS damage?
Now I will answer the above-mentioned questions:
The proposed method has been developed for 20 years. Nihilism in the profession and a deliberate departure from the influence of official medicine allowed us to develop, ignoring dogmas and axioms. Practical achievements were formed into scientific conclusions and theories, and not vice versa, as often happens. Now you have a way to help your child independently and effectively.
