Training Courses

Infant Behavioral Assessment Intervention Program (IBAIP):
Supporting the Infant and Family as they Transition from NICN to Home

The Infant Behavioral Assessment and Intervention Program (IBAIP) is a proven, comprehensive assessment and intervention model that supports the developmental and neurobehavioral integrity of infants born prematurely with low to extremely low birth weight, or with disabilities. The focus of the IBAIP is not “what to teach” but “how to teach,” a process oriented approach. By focusing on how to facilitate learning and social interaction, the IBAIP
adds a critical individualized, relationship-based, family-centered, and neurobehavioral approach to infant intervention, often lacking in traditional early intervention methodologies. The IBAIP is a training and education program for early intervention and health care professionals.

For more information please see the IBAIP website: www.ibaip.org

Family and Infant Neurodevelopmental Education (FINE) Program

The FINE Program has been endorsed by the NFI as foundations in NIDCAP education.  More details about the program to follow soon.

The SOFFI MethodSM: Supporting Oral Feeding in Fragile Infants

The SOFFI MethodSM is designed to help caregivers become Co-Regulators, using evidence-based interventions designed to help infants maintain homeostasis during feedings, or regain homeostasis if the infant becomes dysregulated. Erin Sundseth Ross, Ph.D., CCC-SLP developed the SOFFI MethodSM, a 2-day conference offering that is available to hospital and community professionals.

Film

Mani per Crescere

Mani per Crescere imageThe Italian Society of Neonatology (La Società Italiana di Neonatologia) and the Neonatal Care Study Group together with Vivere Onlus produced the film Mani per crescere. The movie was filmed in the newborn intensive care units  of Modena Univeristy Hospital and Turin University Hospital. The film was produced to emphasize the importance of the role of infants and their families as active collaborators in their own care process in the NICU, and also to increase the awareness among the Italian NICUs of a neurodevelopmental individualized approach for the care of preterm infants.

For more information on the film please visit the Vivere Onlus website.

Watch the trailer in Italian here. The English version of the trailer will be available soon.
