Learning opportunities for therapists and medical professionals involved in pediatrics will transpire through lecture, case reports, group problem solving, video review. The extensive use of pictures and videos throughout the four hours will allow participates to problem solve head shape providing functional ways to evaluate and treat. The presentation will provide evidence-based clinical pathways for management of infant head shape. Differential diagnosis that may lead to head shape differences will be explored. Discussion will concentrate on progressive, effective evaluation and treatment schemes for infants with a diagnosis of plagiocephaly, including challenging cases. Current research and recommendations pertaining to the implications of plagiocephaly and increased use of positional devices will be discussed and incorporated. Red flags for related early infancy and preschool consequences will be appraised. Emphasis on home exercise programs, effective strategies, and long term follow-up to team with parents will be explored.
As a result of this course, participants will be able to:
- Appraise available research and solutions to manage the impact on head shape that may be present with a diagnosis of plagiocephaly, including helmet criteria

Cindy Miles, PT, PhD. PCS, CNDT - In Memoriam. The late Cindy Miles was a beloved and valued member of our faculty. For nearly 20 years, Cindy was an engaging instructor at ERI, energetically presenting the latest research to improve evaluation and treatment skills for Torticollis and Plagiocephaly among her course participants. Cindy was a distinguished pediatric clinician, serving as President of APTA for 6 years, as well as a successful private practice owner in Pennsylvania for 25 years.
Dr. Miles was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, School of Health Related Professionals and East Stroudsburg University with a Master of Education in exercise physiology. She held a PhD in Pediatric Science from the Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. Her doctoral research was on potential risk factors related to the diagnosis of Torticollis. She was Board Certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties as a Pediatric Clinical Specialist, specializing in treating children from birth through to young adults. Cindy completed the eight week Pediatric NeuroDevelopmental training course and the Advanced Infant course.
ERI President, Carol Loria, shares this sentiment:
“I first met Cindy nearly 20 years ago when the diagnosis of torticollis was largely unknown to the therapy community. In addition to her clinical expertise and her commitment to excellence in teaching, research and public health, I could not help but be struck by her kindness, warmth and passion for improving the lives of children and their families. She has been a beloved and valued member of our faculty ever since. Our hearts go out to her family, friends and to the many children, parents, and therapists whose lives she enriched. Our ERI family mourns with you.”
"Cindy Miles was a very informative and knowledgeable presenter. She kept everyone engaged with personal case studies and treatment ideas. I will definitely be using her strategies with my patients!" - -Jeanette Palacios, OT
