On behalf of children with minor difficulties

All children grow and develop at different speeds. For some parents, it is a challenge to know whether or not to seek help for their child. If that describes you, please consider this question:

What do these people have in common?

  1. a child who "skips" crawling,
  2. a child who finds it difficult to walk down stairs,
  3. a teenager who avoids sports and
  4. an adult who hates to exercise and struggles with neck and back pain.

Answer: they are all the same person.

Each person has a different trajectory through life, and there are many, many places where a person can learn and change. How about helping your child now? Shifting something simple, like how easy it is to hold a pencil, or how fun it is to run, can open a world of options to your child. If your infant is experiencing minor developmental delays, or if your child is struggles with their coordination, balance, motor skills or dexterity, a short series of sessions could have lifelong benefits.
