A Collective Resource for Parents to Help Foster Your Infant’s Development
As an Occupational Therapist (OT), I have been trained to support development across the lifespan from a variety of different ways to support and foster both growth and development. My training is unique in that I understand infant development by looking at several things:
- Neurobehavioral development
- Sensory development
- Visual, tactile, olfactory, oral, proprioceptive, vestibular, and auditory stimulation
- Unique infant stress cues
- Importance of positive touch and stimulation
- Typical developmental milestones
These are just some of the unique ways I support infants in their development overall. As I have grown in my practice as an OT, I have begun to see trends in areas that both infants and parents may struggle. From this, I have learned a variety of ways to support both infant and caregiver. One of the fundamental ways to support the unique baby and caregiver bond is to began to read infant cues and supporting and fostering their sensory system at a young age. That will help your infant as they grow to meet their milestones on time and be ready for the next steps as they grow. This page is a unique set that will offer my global tricks of the trade, highlight neurobehavioral and sensory development through touch and play, and also provide insight on positive touch and infant massage. I welcome any questions and challenges, and I hope to use this page to help you and your infant grow together.
