Techniques for Every Age

The first years of my son’s life were exciting and I was so proud that he was “ahead” of schedule developmentally.  Looking back with what I know now, I realize that his advances were red flags to later setbacks and that I didn’t have a perspective of his holistic development. Sitting, crawling, walking are wonderful but these physical milestones were directly connected to the other areas of his development.  Whether you have a teenager, toddler or an infant, understanding how your child has developed and where they are NOW developmentally gives you the target zone to best guide them.
