   •    Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood.

   •    Demonstrate understanding of new terminology such as functional joint centration, punctum fixum, punctum mobile and the integrated stabilizing system of the spine.

   •    Demonstrate a basic understanding of the principles of reflex locomotion:  locomotor patterns - stepping and support function and stimulation zones.

   •    Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.

   •    Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests.

   •    Perform the basic techniques for reflex locomotion, i.e. reflex turning 1 & 2, and reflex creeping:  initial positioning and anticipated movements, key zones and their vectors.

   •    Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions used in reflex locomotion.  Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies.

   •    Provide basic clinical management explanation for clinicians to better integrate the DNS approach in their regular practice, including patient education.

   •    To  optimally prepare students for the next level of training (Course “B”).
