Content of intervention.

Supine-Weight bearing through head, neck, and shoulder with trunk elongation
-Pelvis rotation
-Stimulation of upper and lower extremities with different surfaces
-Increase strength and control of the anterior shoulder and chest muscles
-Increase strength and balance. Control of the anterior and posterior neck muscles
-Improve proximal stabilization and proprioceptive inputs
-Maintain the head up and in the midline
Prone-Weight bearing through upper limbs with vestibular stimulations; intermittent compression through shoulders
-Pelvis stabilization
-Increase strength and balance of the anterior and posterior shoulder muscles
-Increase strength, balance, and control of the anterior and posterior neck and upper back muscles
Side lying-Bilateral upper limb activities and dissociated movement in lower extremities-Scapula stabilization
-Strength and control of shoulder girdle to provide a stable base for head lifting and turning
-Bring the hands to mouth
-Improve selective movements in hips
Sitting-Reaching forward, backward and sides with trunk elongation-Increase the strength of back extensors and abdominal muscles
-Improve anterior, posterior and sideway balance
-Provide postural control -Reach to toy with hands and grasp
Standing-Reaching forward and sideways while standing, weight bearing of lower extremities in front of the mirror, cruising around furniture-Increase the strength of back and hip extensors and abdominal muscles
-Increase the strength of gluteus medius to provide the hip stabilization in the stance phase of walking
Transition Positions-Sitting to stand, rolling supine to prone, supine to sit-Increase the strength of back and trunk extensors
-Minimize the asymmetry
-Improve the balance and postural control
-Increase the strength of the trapezius and quadriceps muscle
