Healthy Foundations for Life
The first years of life are key for developing foundations of movement, sensory processing, and social bonding. These foundations will support childhood development of more sophisticated fine and gross motor skills, academic skills, and social skills.
Developmental movement education to support clear pathways of movement, healthy patterns of taking in information through the senses, and satisfying rhythms of bonding and communication is of great benefit to parents and caregivers of babies and young children. Movement facilitation and patterning is especially helpful for babies and toddlers who are at-risk for developmental issues.
Kathie serves babies, toddlers, and their families. This includes babies born premature and babies born with birth injuries or genetic conditions, from mild to severe.
Here are some examples of questions Kathie can help you to answer:
“My baby is very uncomfortable during tummy time. Is there anything I can do to ease that difficulty?”
“Our baby was born premature. What does that mean in terms of development? How can we best support our child? ”
“Our baby is not doing the same things as babies the same age. Is there anything as parents we can do to help?”
“My baby is skipping milestones (able to sit but not rolling, walking but not crawling). What does this mean?”
