Video 1.18: Using Video for REALLY Watching

A therapist shows the use of video as an effective strategy for communication between families and practitioners. The therapist video tapes a mother playing with her infant embedding motor skill challenges into their routine. The mother engages her son with a favorite toy and then moves it out of reach, so that he will move to get it. Viewing the video helps the therapist realize the strengths and abilities of the mother as well as those of the child (running time: 1 min. 53 sec.).
