Working with babies and children~ hope, learning and transformation

Are you worried about your baby not reaching developmental milestones?

Does your baby have special needs?

How can I help?

If your child hasn't developed normal movement patterns for some reason, I can work gently with my hands to help your child to discover these motor patterns.

Early building blocks are fundamental to future movement: if these have been missed we can work together to put these patterns into your child's nervous system.​

What are these early building blocks?

Well, we take them for granted.
We don't understand their significance until they're not there. . . 
  • following with our eyes
  • turning our head
  • reaching out voluntarily to grasp something
  • rolling over
  • sitting up
  • finding support in gravity on all fours
  • being able to weight and unweight to begin to crawl
  • developing a contralateral movement pattern in crawling 
   All these things have to be in place before a child can begin to walk
 Developmental
