Boosting your baby’s development…how? when? what? We all want to make sure we are optimising our baby’s development but that sometimes doesn’t come easily. In this week’s episode of Sense by Meg Faure, Meg is joined by fellow Occupational Therapists and founders of Connect with Me, Taryn Schneider & Cornelia Liebentritt.
Accessing your baby’s emotional world to boost development
As parents, we often focus on gross motor milestones to gauge our baby’s development but as the professionals explain, there is an emotional component to development. Taryn & Cornelia share a keen interest in how the emotional connection between a child & a care giver can enhance a little one’s development. They created the DevelopME programme to teach parents how to access their child’s emotional world on a daily basis to encourage milestone development.
How parents shape development
Little ones rely on their moms & dads to teach them how to regulate in the world. It’s a fascinating process that starts during bonding and complete regulation in the early days to co-regulation in toddlerhood to self regulation. They go on to explore emotional intelligence and they each share their favourite milestone and why.
