Part 1: Paediatric Clinical Screening
The Sutherland Cranial College welcomed Dr. Mary Anne Morelli Haskell DO (USA) to present this part of the course. An experienced teacher of Paediatric Osteopathy, she has taught not only with Dr. Frymann, but also for the Cranial Academy and at various osteopathic colleges in Italy and Australia. Her clear and accessible style, together with a warmth and love of the subject, make learning from her a real pleasure.
Dr. Morelli taught how to examine babies and young children in the light of common and some rarer conditions encountered in practice. Paying special attention to the ‘red flags’ that indicate a need for medical referral, she showed how to assess when osteopathic treatment is appropriate and when it is necessary to work in cooperation with other health or educational professionals.
