Avancées récentes dans la mise en place de prises en charge HABIT-ILE précoces chez l'enfant paralysé cérébral

Yannick Bleyenheuft (Woluwe-saint-Lambert, Belgique)

Objective : Hand and Arm Bimanual Intensive Therapy Including Lower Extremities has gained a growing interest since its development in 2011. This motor-skill learning based intervention uses functional goals defined by the children and their parents to promote autonomy and participation. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in school-aged children with both unilateral and with bilateral CP. This talk will focus on the application of the key principles of HABIT-ILE in pre-school children, the improvements obtained in pilot studies for early HABIT-ILE, the first motor and non-motor results as well as the barriers witnessed in the large randomized trials running for children 1 to 4 years old.

Material / Patients and Methods : Results of a pilot study in 10 children from 1 to 4 years old, methods of 3 running randomized trials.

Results : The pilot results demonstrated large improvements following a HABIT-ILE intervention. The large randomized trials running should provide strong evidence that the methodology detailed in this talk allow reproducing them in children with unilateral and bilateral CP.

Discussion - Conclusion : This talk should allow to share the adaptations of HABIT-ILE for pre-school age children, as well as the interest of intensive intervention at that age.
