I wanted to start this blog by letting you know my intentions. I’m not here to tell you what you must do or how you have to raise your child. I’m not here to tell you that you are doing it all wrong. I’m not here to preach my opinions to you. What I am here to do is offer information that is both based on my professional experience as well as on research conducted in the area of child development.
If you have read my bio you know that I hold 3 post-graduate degrees in Occupational Therapy and Clinical Psychology. What my bio doesn’t mention is that I am a mother to a 15-month old and an aunt to 2 young teenage girls that I have seen weekly since their birth. I started my company alone and have grown it to an interdisciplinary clinic that focuses on early childhood development. I have watched hundreds of children develop over the years and have learned something new from working with each one and their family. Every day I strive to help families with life.
I strongly believe that there is not one cookie cutter way to treat children. What works for one child and one family will not always work for another. I am here to support you in helping your child develop in a way that works for you and your family. I am here to provide suggestions and recommendations to help your family thrive and be the best it can be. I am not here to offer medical advice that must be followed and should only be done in the way I have explained. When in doubt, speak to your pediatrician or local medical professional.
It is your decision on what you choose to do with my recommendations. Try them, don’t try them. All I really want to do is get you to think about these things, perhaps in a way that you may not have thought of them before.
If you have questions for me, leave a comment. I’m here for you and your family.
