Dr. Bernard Dan is paediatric neurologist who is practicing at Inkendaal Rehabilitation Hospital in Belgium. He is a full-time Professor of Developmental Neuroscience at the University of Libra De Bruxelles. He is also a guest Professor at the KU Leuven and VUB and holder of the Francqui Chair at UGent. He is the Editor-in-chief of Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology. Dr. Dan is the executive board member of the International Child Neurology Association. 

Central Hypotonia is often an early, non-specific feature of Neurodevelopmental disorders. Examples include congenital blindness, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, down syndrome, fragile X-syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, and even categories of cerebral palsy typified by Hypotonia, not forgetting cases deemed"isolated" Developmental Hypotonia, including so-called Benign Congenital Hypotonia with a remitting course, but not connective tissue disorders with no Neurological component. It is essential to clarify the notion and relevance of Developmental Central Hypotonia in order to understand the motor phenotype of children with Neurodevelopmental disorders more fully to help them optimise both primary and non-primary motor aspects of their functioning and ongoing development. 

The core learning objectives of this webinar will be: 

  • Update the notion of muscle tone for the clinician. 
  • Understand the pathophysiological factors underlying Developmental Central Hypotonia. 
  • Recognize the importance of it in diagnosis, development, and management, including secondary prevention.

    @ICNA I would like to ask if the webinars are recorded and available to watch after the meeting? Unfortunately, I could not make it on time when the webinar took place.
