Different children develop at different rates. It can be hard to know when to be concerned and when to relax and let your child get there in their own time. Developing a strong relationship with your child, playful learning experiences and meeting your child’s needs for sleep, healthy food and physical activity ensures your child’s early years get them off to a good start. The following website http://raisingchildren.net.au/ is a good source of reliable information. If you are concerned about your child’s development talk to your GP, Child Health Nurse, Paediatrician or Occupational Therapist. With a special interest in working closely with parents regarding early development, I would be very happy to work with you in this area.
