Ei SMART for Neonatologists and Paediatricians

Ei SMART for Neonatologists and Paediatricians: Integrate early intervention and anticipatory guidance to your Neurodevelopmental follow up clinics for high-risk infants. Learn how to support parents and advance young children’s developmental skills using the Ei SMART framework during your consultation. The content of this study day is aimed specifically at neonatologists and paediatricians who are involved in the neurodevelopmental assessment of high-risk infants in follow up clinics. If you would like to enhance your ability to provide developmental support and anticipatory guidance to parents to promote optimal child development, then this training is for you. You will gain insight into how to support and guide parents with their infant’s developmental process as part of your multi-disciplinary follow up team or until additional and specialised services are available. You will learn how to provide targeted early intervention focusing on everyday activities which are understandable for parents and their infants, based on commonly seen developmental challenges in the first 2 years.

Ei SMART is a framework for clinical reasoning based on evidence-based principles to give high risk babies the best start in life.  It spans infant development from birth to pre-school and beyond. It uniquely supports infant development by integrating Sensory, Motor, Attention and regulation and Relational development through co-production between multi-disciplinary healthcare professionals and parents working Together.

This study day is co-developed and presented by our team of therapists, (OT, PT, SLT), nursing and medical practitioners, and parents with lived experience of having babies and young children with developmental differences and challenges.
