NBO Course for High Risk Infants

Read below about our  *NEW*  NBO course focusing on the high risk infant suitable for professionals working in Neonatal and Early Intervention settings.

What is a 'High Risk Infant'?

A ‘High Risk Infant’ is used to describe babies who are at high-risk of developmental difficulties including infants born preterm, infants born at term with risk factors (such as neonatal hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy, neonatal abstinence syndrome, congenital conditions or having undergone complex surgical procedures), and infants receiving palliative care.

Who is the course for?

This NBO course is for professionals working with the high risk infant in neonatal and early intervention settings.

It will appeal to Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech & Language Therapists, Neonatal Nurses and Doctors and all those who are working with high risk infants and their families.

How is it similar and different to the standard NBO course?

This course will have the same basic curriculum, theoretical content, and certification process as standard NBO trainings. However the focus and application will be on the high risk infant.
Content will include case studies and videos to illustrate how the NBO can be implemented in practice to support babies and families where additional risks may challenge the infant’s abilities for self regulation or social interaction and/or the parent-infant relationship.
