College is Child's Play for these DPT Students During our Annual Baby Lab

Pediatric Seminar - Baby Lab
Primary Instructor: Mary Jo Davenport, PhD, PT
During baby lab, future doctors of physical therapy learned about typical infant and toddler development while observing children during normal play.

Students enjoyed the opportunity to examine many different questions about how infants and young children of various ages develop, learn, and master gross and fine motor skills.

As each child engaged in various play and movement activities the students analyzed, compared, and discussed how children move at various ages.  This was a also great opportunity for students to compare social, and language skills among infants and toddlers of various ages. 

This lab was made possible with the help of faculty and staff who generously volunteered their adorable children for participation.
