    Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) Paediatric Course - Level 1

    Structure of the DNS Pediatric educational track:

    • The basic Pediatric DNS Course (part 1) is over 4 days 
    • The intermediate Pediatric DNS Course (part 2) is over 4 days 
    • Advanced Pediatric DNS Course (part 3) 4 days 
    • The Final Course D is over 6 days. This is the general course taking place in Prague both for participants following the standardized educational A-D track and the Pediatric DNS track.

    DNS Pediatric educational track ground rules:

    • Students who have completed the Basic Pediatric course (part 1) can register to the Intermediate Pediatric course (part 2) or to the standardized course B (they do not need to attend the Standardized DNS A Course)

    DNS Pediatric Level 1 is a 4 days course for attendees who works primarily with pediatric clients.

    • Demonstrate an understanding of developmental kinesiology in depth with an emphasis on development during the first year of life. Basic sagittal stabilization, postural-locomotion function, stepping forward and supporting extremity function
    • Describe the basis for primitive reflexes and postural reactions and their roles in developmental kinesiology
    • Red flags in the development during the first year of life
    • Assessment of baby’s developmental age. Developmental and chronological age correlation (baby demonstration)
    • Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood
    • Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional DNS tests in children
    • Clarify how DNS corrective exercises can integrate with other exercise strategies
    • Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns
    • DNS principles for baby handling in positions that corresponds to developmental positions of the baby age 0-7m. Devices used for carrying babies, yes or no, how and why?
    • Child with asymmetry (oblique neck, oblique pelvis, plagiocephaly and their consequences to the development)
    • Demonstrations of baby assessment and treatment based on DNS principles
    • Toddlers and preschool children exercises according to DNS, easy positions without differentiation


    After the DNS Pediatric 1 course participants should be able to assess the spontaneous locomotor function of a child and distinguished between physiological and pathological movement pattern. The emphasis is put on assessment of quality of a movement and assessment of the basic primitive reflexes.


    Participants who would like to take part in the educational track towards becoming a certified practitioner can take this exam for an additional fee. Participants are required to return the test to the Prague School instructor within 8 weeks following the course. Upon successful completion and passing of the test, a “Certificate of ACHIEVEMENT” from the Prague School of Rehabilitation will be awarded.
