Bonding and Relaxation Techniques (BART) for Infants Training for Parent Advisors, TVIs, and COMSs - 013688
BART (Bonding and Relaxation Techniques) was developed by Evelyn Guyer, RN, BSN, in the late 1980s. It is based on Vimala McClure's parent education program of Infant Massage. BART is specifically designed to address the needs of infants and children with special needs. The BART Training is for professionals who work with families of children with developmental and/or sensory disabilities, with a focus on ages birth to three years old. Participants will be guided through the BART technique with an overview of methods to access the Bonding and Relaxation Techniques (BART) Curriculum for families of children with sensory disabilities. A follow-up discussion will be held via webinar on June 28, 2019, regarding implementation successes and challenges.
