Il Centro 0-3 per il bambino a rischio evolutivo (da qui in avanti Centro 0-3) offre un servizio di psicologia clinica e svolge attività di ricerca scientifica con uno specifico focus sui primi tre anni di vita occupandosi di bambini che presentino una disabilità neuroevolutiva o/e un ritardo dello sviluppo psicomotorio.

Descrizione

I primi anni di vita condizionano in maniera decisiva il successivo sviluppo socio-emozionale e la qualità della vita di un bambino. Questa fase infatti costituisce un “periodo sensibile” dal punto di vista neuromaturativo nel corso del quale l’ambiente influenza in modo significativo la cosiddetta plasticità cerebrale, cioè le modificazioni neuronali che plasmano l’organizzazione funzionale del cervello del bambino. In questo periodo un insieme di fattori individuali (ad esempio, le caratteristiche temperamentali, le competenze sociali e comunicative e la capacità di regolare gli stati comportamentali ed emozionali) e di fattori ambientali (ad esempio, qualità della relazione instaurata con i genitori, condizioni di stress precoce) si influenzano reciprocamente e contribuiscono alla crescita psicologica e relazionale dell’individuo. Condizioni cliniche come la prematurità, disturbi del neuro-sviluppo, quadri sindromici hanno un significativo impatto sullo sviluppo cognitivo e socio-emozionale, con diversi gradi di compromissione del quadro funzionale. In queste circostanze, la qualità delle relazioni precoci del bambino con le figure primarie di riferimento costituisce sia uno dei fattori di protezione che di promozione dello sviluppo delle competenze del bambino.

All’interno di questo contesto l’attività ricerca scientifica è uno dei principali mezzi per accrescere la nostra conoscenza clinica e per sviluppare protocolli di valutazione e di intervento sempre più efficaci e capaci di rispondere in modo individualizzato alle esigenze e ai bisogni dei nostri piccoli pazienti e dei loro genitori. Le principali aree di indagine riguardano:

  • lo studio della relazione precoce madre-bambino e del profilo neuro-comportamentale, delle capacità comunicative e della regolazione del bambino a rischio evolutivo (es. nati prematuri);
  • lo studio dell’impatto a breve e lungo termine della qualità delle cure in terapia intensiva neonatale sullo sviluppo socio-emozionale del bambino e sul benessere genitoriale;
  • lo studio delle modificazioni epigenetiche connesse a fattori di rischio ambientali (ad esempio, precoci esperienze di ricovero ed esposizione a stress) e a fattori di protezione (ad esempio, la qualità del supporto genitoriale e della sensibilità materna) e della loro interazione con lo sviluppo comportamentale, cognitivo e socio-emozionale del bambino;
  • lo studio dell’impatto che la presenza di una malattia rara ha sul benessere genitoriale e sul funzionamento del bambino;
  • lo studio dei correlati neurali (es. ritmo EEG-Mu) del sistema dei neuroni specchio in associazione a compiti di valutazione delle competenze imitative in bambini a sviluppo tipico e atipico;
  • lo studio dell’efficacia di interventi di supporto alla genitorialità in genitori di bambini con disturbo neuro-evolutivo;
  • lo sviluppo e l’utilizzo di nuove tecnologie per la valutazione e il supporto dell’interazione precoce genitore-bambino con disturbo neuro-evolutivo.

Il Centro 0-3 fornisce consulenza alle ricerche cliniche su problematiche neurologiche /comportamentali (ad esempio disturbi dell’alimentazione e della deglutizione, disturbi del sonno) associate a quadri di disturbo del neurosviluppo.
